📝 Instructions

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400°F. Fill a large pot with water, salt it, and bring it to a boil.

Step 2

Rinse TJ's Mini Pearl Grape Tomatoes, then dump in a medium-sized bowl. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons or more of olive oil and toss to coat. Add salt & pepper, then spread out on a baking tray, and roast in the oven at 400°F for about 20 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, peel and mince 4-5 large garlic cloves. Remove larger stems from TJ's kale leaves. In a large Dutch oven, sauté garlic and kale over medium heat, until kale starts to wilt. Cover pan and turn heat to low.

Step 4

Once the water boils, add your TJ's Penne Rigate pasta and give it a stir. Cook 6 to 8 minutes or until al dente.

Step 5

Add roasted tomatoes (and any juices) to the garlic and kale. Then add one can of TJ's Giant Baked Beans in Tomato Sauce. Gently stir to incorporate. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Step 6

When the pasta is done, drain it, and add one-half to three-quarters of the penne to the garlic, kale, and tomatoes, then mix and serve topped with grated Parmesan (optional) cheese.
