Pasta with Hot Sausage and Kale

So the other night my DH says to me, Will I ever see pasta again? Poor him. He seems to be tired of "zoodles" and wants the real deal. Well, what can it hurt? So, I go all out and use whole wheat spirals, hot sausage, and KALE! I have to say this was quite tasty if I do say so myself :-) I bought the hot Italian sausage at Sparrow Meat Market in Kerrytown and it is really good stuff--head and shoulders above what you might get at the local grocer like Meijer, Kroger, etc.

1 lb hot Italian sausage, removed from casings
1 bunch kale, stemmed and chopped
4 large garlic cloves, sliced
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 bag whole wheat spirals
parmesan cheese

In large skillet, brown the sausage, remove to bowl. Add the garlic and stir a bit, add the kale and the chicken broth--add the sausage back in and cover and simmer for 15 minutes or so. Boil the pasta, drain (save a little pasta water in case you need it). Add the drained pasta to the sausage kale mixture--stir around and add a little Parm-if mixture seems a little dry add the pasta water. Mine didn't need extra water. Spoon into bowls and pass extra Parm.
