> 1 red onion
> 1 small fennel bulb, trimmed
> 1 clove garlic, sliced
> 1/4 cup olive oil
> 1 tsp dried oregano
> 1 (12 oz) bag fresh kale
> 1 lb Italian sausage
> 8 oz curly pasta such as cavatappi pasta
> 1 tsp crushed red pepper


Preheat the oven to 400°F. Cut the onion into wedges and the fennel into thin slices. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread the onion and fennel on top. In a bowl mix 3 tbsp oil with garlic and oregano and drizzle it over the vegetables. Roast the vegetables about 25 min., or until tender.
Meanwhile, cook the kale in salted water 10 min. until tender. Cut the sausages into 1 in pieces. Heat the remaining oil in a frying pan and fry the sausages for 5 min. until brown. Drain the kale and add to the sausages. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper.
Cook the pasta according to package directions. Toss the pasta in a bowl with the roasted vegetables and kale-sausage mixture. Sprinkle with crushed red pepper to taste.
