Green Tomato and Kale Pasta Sauce

Green Tomato and Kale Pasta Sauce

With over 25 tomato plants in my garden, I was looking for a new idea. I could have in theory waited for them to ripen, but I was having issues with some of my roma plants (sigh!) and decided to call it a day on about 10 of my plants. So I pulled off the tomatoes, and chucked the plants. Then went and got inspired to do some canning. Green tomato pasta sauce? Sure! You won’t be finding this in your local grocery store I can tell you. This might be even too hipster for a fancy foods store…..
