Creamy Pasta with Mushroom and Kale

Creamy Pasta with Mushroom and Kale (Inspired from the Creamy Roasted Tomato pasta from a Happy Herbivore meal plan)


  • 12 oz. pasta, cooked
  • Kale
  • 1 Onion, sliced thin
  • 8 oz. Mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can fire-roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup hummus (try this easy homemade hummus recipe)
  • 1 tablespoon of dried basil, adjust to desired taste
  • Optional: red pepper flakes (for some spice)


  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Add the kale the last minute of cooking. Drain.
  2. While pasta is cooking: Caramelize the onion in some water or broth.
  3. Add in mushrooms and garlic and saute for a few minutes.
  4. Add a can of diced tomatoes and cook for a few minutes.
  5. Stir in the hummus and basil and heat through.
  6. When the pasta is done: Combine the sauce with the pasta and serve.

Notes: You can also steam the kale in advance and add in at the end.

    How much kale and how are your preparing it? Is it raw or steamed or? Is it chopped minus the thick stem?

    This is a delicious recipe. I use whole wheat rotini for pasta and spinach instead of kale. I cook the spinach along with the pasta and then just add it to the other ingredients. Thank you. I make it quite often and love it every time!
