Spicy Asian Pasta with Kale and Mushrooms


Spicy Asian Pasta


I love spaghetti and I love most western style dishes. But from time to time, I really want to have some kind of Asian flavors. Maybe it’s because I grew up in Asia, and my body is programmed to seek for Asian food! This Asian pasta is perfect for that kind of day^^ It is easy and quick! You can make this dish with any vegetables in your fridge. I usually make this pasta with Tuscan kale, but my husband doesn’t like most kale dishes because of its bitter taste. This time, I used BABY kale for him. Baby kale is still healthy and it is not bitter like matured one. Here I share my recipe for spicy Asian pasta with kale and mushrooms. Enjoy!
