6 ounces spaghetti
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
1 cup onions, thinly sliced
1 bunch kale, cleaned and chopped
6 garlic cloves, chopped
1 ½ cups tomatoes, diced and juice drained off
½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
¼ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese

Directions: 1. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking liquid. Return the spaghetti to the
pot; keep warm.
2. In a large nonstick saucepan, heat the oil. Sauté the onions until light golden, 7-8 minutes. Add the kale and garlic; cook, stirring,
until the kale is wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in ½ cup water; reduce the heat and simmer, covered, until the kale is tender, 8-10
minutes.
3. Add the tomatoes, the pasta cooking liquid, pepper and salt; heat through. Add the spaghetti and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in the
cheese.
