Creamy Kale and Garlic Pasta {Wheat Free}

I was watching The Chew yesterday and they were having a discussion on whether or not people generally eat the same thing all the time (like Monday is taco night, Tuesday is spaghetti, etc). I don't know if people generally like consistency with their food, but what I do know is that I am the complete opposite. I quickly get bored with food if I eat it too often so I generally don't repeat a recipe for at least a few weeks or sometimes months. I'm constantly looking up new recipes to try and love/crave the variety. This recipe falls into this category. It's pasta, but not your regular pasta with tomato sauce. 

I found this recipe here but as usual, switched it up a bit. First, I used corn pasta so that I could eat it. Corn pasta is by far my favorite wheat free pasta since I feel it is the closest to regular pasta. Second, we ran out of spinach so I used kale instead. Lastly, I couldn't find dried figs so I used prunes.

Besides those changes, I followed the recipe. Overall, this recipe is really good. When it was fresh, it was a little too garlicky for me, but the leftovers the next day didn't seem nearly as strong. Because I like things fresh, I would use less garlic in the future. Other than that, I loved the creaminess and the flavor of the sauce.

If you want to make this for yourself, head on over to this site.
