Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Kale, and Gorgonzola Sauce

Fresh cherry tomatoes and kale jazz up this quick and easy pasta dish with a gorgonzola cream sauce. Serve by itself or pair up with grilled chicken.

Pasta with Cherry Tomatoes, Kale, and Gorgonzola Sauce 2

Back to school season is here. I may not have children who are getting back into the swing of another school year, nor am I myself in school (which by the way it still has not sunk in that I am no longer a student) but the time has come to start whipping up those quick and easy weeknight meals. This pasta dish not only takes advantage of the tomatoes in season, but comes together in minutes and can be served as a side or by itself. I chose to serve it topped with grilled chicken and garlic bread.
