Kale pesto, or pesto di cavolo nero, is a delicious and versatile autumn/winter sauce that can be used in all your favorite holiday dishes. It’s an alternative to pesto alla genovese and is rich in flavor thanks to the Tuscan kale, Parmigiano Reggiano cheese and walnuts. Curly kale, or cavolo riccio, can also be used in this recipe. Mix the pesto with a warm bowl of pasta and top with roasted pumpkin and pine nuts or use it as a sauce for a quick whole grain farro salad with seasonal vegetables and legumes.
