Upon first glance, you might assume the following contains something akin to Velveeta. You'd be wrong, of course. It *actually* contains two superfoods and very little of anything that isn't actually good for you!

Creamy Pumpkin and Kale Pasta

1/2 c light plain soy milk
1-2 T Earth Balance (or butter)
2 T flour
garlic powder, nutmeg, pepper
dry white cooking wine

1 c pumpkin puree
1/2 c non-fat ricotta cheese

2 c torn kale leaves

4 servings of whole wheat pasta

Begin a roux by melting butter, adding flour and milk gradually, and stirring often. Add spices and wine to taste. Add pumpkin and cheese and mix well, continue simmering. Meanwhile, bring a pot of water to boil and add pasta and kale leaves, cook as directed on package. Draine and combine with pumpkin mix, top with parmesan and serve.
