- 2 cup(s) uncooked rigatoni
- 8 oz uncooked turkey sausage (any kind),

Cook rigatoni in salted water according to package directions.
Meanwhile, remove sausage from casing and cook in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat, breaking up sausage as it cooks, about 3 minutes.
Add kale; cook, stirring frequently, until limp, about 3 to 5 minutes.
Add broth to skillet and scrape up browned bits on the bottom of skillet with a wooden spoon; season with salt and pepper.
Cover skillet and reduce heat to low; cook until kale is tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in rigatoni; heat through. Sprinkle each serving with about 2 tablespoons of cheese before serving.
