Kale Powered Pasta

I know that kale is kind of a trendy food right now.  God, that sounds so ridiculous to type but, it's true.  It falls into the organic cliche that's happening right now.  Long story short, I havent tried it before so I figured Id make a lunch with it.  There are few leafy greens that I dont like.  In fact, my green smoothie had kale in it tonight.
