Bucatini is a large thick tubular pasta that looks like spaghetti noodles, but they’re much heartier. You know how Japanese udon noodles are chewy and satisfying? Bucatini pasta gives you the same satiety!

I picked this recipe from the blogger I was assigned to for the Freaky Friday blog hop that I participate in regularly! Remember when I shared this Baked Hot Cheesy Corn from the last Freaky Friday event?  It has become one of my favorite recipes!!

The premise of Freaky Friday is similar to the Disney Movie, but the switch-a-roo is recipes between bloggers. Picking the recipe is the hard part of Freaky Friday because I’m surrounded by so many talented home cooks! Alan and I devoured this meal several weeks ago, so it’s been hard to keep this hidden away until now!!

After going through post after post there was no doubt that the recipe I wanted to highlight would need to be an Italian dish. Yep, when I was assigned to Angela’s LeMoine Family Kitchen I knew right away that a dish that show cases Angela’s Italian roots as well as her casual style of cooking would be my pick!

This Bucatini with Sausage & Kale: 5 Ingredient Meals was a no-brainer! Angela has two young boys at home that have shown an interest in cooking too, so don’t be surprised if one day the whole family is on the show Chopped!

I know dinner with young busy kids has to be filling and quick and Angela nailed it with this Bucatini Sausage Kale dish! This recipe is simple, flavorful and hits the spot! This is the perfect meal for those evenings you want a delicious meal without all the fuss. I would also serve this for guests with a glass of wine of course!

There’s lots of garlic (yum) in this dish, a light broth with a healthy dose of olive oil, Italian sausage and nutritious kale! I love everything about this one-pan meal and so did Alan! In fact, we had leftovers that we brought to work for our lunches and the flavors got even better as they melded.

Angela has quite a few healthy recipes you’ll want to check out like this Green Smoothie Power Bowl and BLT Chicken Salad Stuffed Avocados as well as many more Italian recipes like this Italian Wedding Soup and this Antipasto Tortellini Salad!

    Bucatini pasta is great because it is so hearty and you can add some hearty ingredients to go with it. Plus you can really taste the pasta itself! Great recipe with sausage and kale!
