Eat at Home

2 T. butter
1-2 T. olive oil
3-5 garlic cloves, crushed
10 oz. kale, chopped
1/2 c. white wine or water
salt and pepper, to taste
red pepper flakes (optional)
24 oz. cheese tortellini
2-3 c. cooked chicken, warmed
cooking water from tortellini
1/2-1 c. shaved parmesan

Cook tortellini as directed on package, reserving a little bit of cooking water before draining.

Meanwhile, cook garlic in oil and butter in a large skillet over medium heat.  Gradually add kale to garlic, stirring and adding more as what's in the pan cooks down and makes room for more. Add wine or water to kale and continue to cook.  Season with salt, pepper, and pepper flakes.

Mix tortellini, kale, and chicken together, adding some of the reserved cooking water if it seems to dry.  Stir in parmesan before serving.

Notes: An easy meal that you could definitely add more kale to.
