1 bunch kale, ribs removed and julienned
1 yellow onion, diced
1 sweet potato, diced
1 tbsp fresh sage, chopped
1/2 lb whole wheat pasta (I used penne)
Zest of 1/2 lemon
Juice of 1/2 lemon

2. Cook the pasta according to instructions.
3. Prepare the kale and onions. Preheat a few tbsp of butter in a pan. Add onions, and cook over medium heat until caramelized and brown. Add the kale and wilt. Add lemon juice, cook for a few more minutes, then stir in lemon zest, salt, and pepper off the heat.
4. Finish the pasta. Combine the sweet potato, kale and onion mixture, and pasta. Add a few tbsp of olive oil, salt and pepper to taste, and finish with parmesan cheese.
