The pesto in this dish is made with blanched lacinato kale (the blanching removes that bitter edge kale can have), pecorino cheese, pine nuts, garlic, extra-virgin olive oil, and lemon juice. We toss it with cavatappi pasta, a ridged corkscrew shape that picks up and holds a lot of sauce (and thus flavor). We throw in a few currants for a sweet touch.
