1/2 Cup, grated Romano Cheese
3 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 Lb Turkey Sausage
8 Oz Pasta
4 Cup, chopped Kale
2/3 Cup Chicken Broth


Remove stems and ribs of kale, then finely chop leaves.

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then cook sausage, breaking up any lumps with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, blanch kale in a 6-quart pot of boiling salted water , uncovered, 5 minutes.

Remove kale with a large sieve and drain.

Return cooking water in pot to a boil, then cook pasta in boiling water, uncovered, until al dente.

Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander.

While pasta cooks, add kale to sausage in skillet and saut, stirring frequently, until just tender, about 5 minutes.

Add broth, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of skillet, then add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved cooking water to skillet, tossing until combined.

Stir in cheese and thin with additional cooking water if desired.

Serve immediately, with additional cheese on the side.
