Whole Wheat Papparadelle with Chicken Sausage, Kale and Mushrooms

This is a healthy dinner that's full of flavor your whole family will enjoy. This meal is loaded with calcium, vitamins A, C and D, folate, fiber, potassium, protein and whole grains. This is for little ones 12+ months who are ready for finger foods. Make sure to cut everything you are feeding to your little one up into bite size pieces.

Here's what you need: Serves 4
4 to 5 pieces of uncooked chicken sausage
1 package whole wheat papparadelle
2 cups chopped kale
1 cup sliced cremini mushrooms
1 cup low sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup pasta water
2 cloves garlic minced
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 tblsp Italian seasoning

Bring a pot of water to boil and cook papparadelle according to package (Make sure to reserve 1/4 cup pasta water before draining). While papparadelle is cooking, heat a large deep skillet over medium high heat. Cut open sausage casings and put meat into skillet. Saute meat until golden (about 7-10 minutes). Set sausage aside but keep juices in skillet. Add garlic and mushrooms to skillet and saute for about 2-3 minutes. Add kale and chicken broth, cover skillet and cook until kale wilts. Add papparadelle, parmesan cheese, pasta water and pepper. Toss to coat. Add sausage back to skillet toss to coat again. Cook for another 2 or so minutes. Serve and enjoy!
