At The Real Food Academy, we came up with this hearty version for the "cold" days ahead. You can always make your own Pasta or exchange the homemade pasta for sheets made out of Eggplant or  Zucchini in order to make this recipe Gluten Free! Serve it with our Warm Kale Antipasto Salad and Caramelized sweet plantains for a flavorful twist.
