PREPARATION
1.
Bring water to boil for pasta and cook as you normally would. In the last 1-2 minutes of cooking, add chopped kale and peas. Drain and return to pot.
2.
While pasta is cooking, place all ingredients for alfredo sauce, pumpkin seeds through black pepper into a blender (the higher speed the better), and blend until completely creamy. For a standard, non-high speed blender, this may take 1-2 minutes. Scrape down the sides as needed.
3.
Pour contents of blender into a small saucepan and cook over low hear, stirring constantly, until sauce begins to thicken, about 3-4 minutes. Season to taste.
4.
Pour alfredo sauce over pasta and veggies, stir well, and serve immediately.
