How about butternut squash (or any other winter squash) and toasted pumpkin seeds? Or bacon and a fried egg? Or just ricotta salata?

Roasted butternut squash, toasted walnuts and currents and a little red onion. I love heat and would add some red pepper flakes. And parmesan cheese. Can I come eat with you?

Farro is pretty dense, and kale can be pretty intense. I'd think of maybe going the carbonara route and adding onions, pancetta, and some lovely fresh egg and cheese. Perhaps lighten it all up by deglazing after the onion and bacon sauté with some white wine and some of the farro (à la pasta) cooking water.

farro pasta can be a little starchy and I'd be afraid the carbonara might get gloppy. The pasta water can be too starchy to help, as well. I'd add caramelized onion and goat cheese or sheep's milk feta, with maybe some walnuts for crunch.

I think Italian sausage would be a tasty addition.
