Pasta of choice (about 80g per person is sufficient)
1 cup kale with main stalk removed
1/2 cup chopped ham
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 tablespoons finely grated Parmesan
salt and pepper to taste


Set a pot of salted water to boil. In the meantime, fry the onion and chopped ham in a tablespoon of olive oil.

When the water boils, add your pasta too cook according to instructions on the packet. Then add the chopped kale 2 minutes before cooking time is up, and cover the pot. I found that I could turn the hob off at this point and let everything cook in the residual heat.

Drain, reserving some water from the pasta (about 2 tablespoons). Add the onions and ham andĀ Parmesan.IMG_20150607_123720 IMG_20150607_124125
