parmigiano-reggiano, raisins, pine nuts, lemon

The pesto in this dish is made with blanched lacinato kale (the blanching removes that bitter edge kale can have), pecorino cheese, pine nuts, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, and lemon juice. We toss it with DeCecco cavatappi pasta, a ridged corkscrew shape that picks up and holds a lot of sauce (and thus flavor). We top with a few raisins for a sweet touch and freshly shaved Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Raisins were not necessary, and something milder than kale would be pleasant.

Delicious but soooo much oil in the bottom.

It tasted fine but lacked complexity. Not one of the stronger dishes I've tasted from Munchery but the bar is pretty high.
