1 lb kale (about two bunches) center ribs and stems removed. I like to roll the leaves up and cut about 1/2 slices.
7 cloves of garlic sliced
pinch of salt
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice (lemons would have been better but pickings were slim here! Add more or less to taste.)
1/2 lb of spaghetti (whole wheat, soba noodles or buckwheat!)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese (add more or less to taste)
Heat 2 tbs of oil in a large saucepan. Add garlic and salt, saute for about 3 minutes.
Add Kale and the last tbs of olive oil, stir to coat.
Cook for about 3 minutes until kale starts to wilt
Add a few teaspoons of water, cover and cook for about 20 minutes. Stirring occasionally and adding a little water as needed.
Meanwhile cook pasta according to package.
Drain, reserve 1/4 cup cooking liquid and add pasta to kale. Stir to combine.
Add lime juice and 1 tbs of cooking liquid. Toss to combine and add more liquid if needed.
Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and serve!
