Lemony Kale Pasta

KALE is a super-GREEN!  Benefits of kale: high in Vitamins K, A, C (just a cup gives you more than your daily requirement of each!), and calcium and iron!  Plus, a variety of phytochemicals that help prevent cancer and aging, especially of the eyes!

Lemony Kale Pasta

1 package whole wheat pasta... Here is a post on some pasta alternatives!
1 large onion, chopped ...I've used white and red onions, both are yummy!
2 Tbsp garlic, minced
1/2 tsp pepper
1 pound kale ... I used more than half of Costco's bag of baby kales :)
1/4 c flaxseed, ground
1/4 c nutritional yeast
1/4 c wheat bran, course grain
1/4 c wheat germ
1/2 lemon, juice squeezed on top of pasta dish!

Prepare pasta as directed.  Saute onion, garlic, and spice for 5-7 min on medium high heat. Then add kale and cook for another 5 min, until greens become bright! Combine remaining dry ingredients. Lastly, mix everything together, squeeze lemon juice on top, and enjoy!
