Simple and delicious! I'm a terrible cook but this turned out great. Used chorizo

Made this tonight -I had the kale on hand and got sausage and pasta when I was at the store. I forgot the chickpeas and substituted pinto beans. It was still delicious!

This recipe is definitely a keeper. I used chorizo since I had it on hand. Next time I'll reserve some of the pasta water - the pan dried out a little as the kale was wilting, and I had to add water. So tasty - even the kids loved it!

Add a little white wine and then some chicken stock and you have a great soup on a cold day (or add to leftovers the next day)

Great dish, easy to make, complete meal in one dish. Wondering whether deglazing with white wine could kick it up a notch?
