I was in the mood for a pasta dish the other night so I went through my fridge to see what I could throw together. I pulled out some Kale, there was also some bacon and as I was searching through my many condiment jars I zeroed in on the roasted red peppers. It was actually quite delicious. I brought it with me to work the next day and ate it cold and it was just as good.
