This pasta dish has no bouillon, or any other meat, in it. It’s colorful, hearty, tasty, and a great way to get greens into your evening meal. It also makes for wonderful leftovers. At the firehouse we usually make a tub full and polish it off before going home the next day at noon.

Sauté the onion, garlic, and corn in a large skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the jalapeno, bell pepper, and kale to the skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Add the diced tomatoes and pasta sauce to the vegetables. Ladle the sauce over the pasta and top with the cashews.
