Pasta with Kale, White Beans and Meyer Lemon

While making dinner the other day I was taken with the beauty of the ingredients I was preparing for our pasta, and snapped this picture (too bad it doesn't quite capture the lovely golden yellow hue--or the magnificent aroma--of the Meyer lemon juice + zest). The resulting one-dish meal was quite delicious, and well-received by all members of the family.

In case you would like to recreate it, here is the "recipe":
The garlic (8 cloves) and kale (1 bunch) was sauteed in olive oil. After a couple minutes, chopped kalamata olives, a can of white beans and a splash of water were added. This all simmered together while the pasta cooked, until the kale was tender. The pasta was drained, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with just a little sea salt, then the kale mixture and the juice and zest of one Meyer lemon was added. Easy and very tasty--perfect for a weeknight meal!
