In This Recipe
Pulse 100g of the walnuts, with the olive oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, cheese, salt and pepper until the mixture forms a rough paste.
Finely chop the Kale and saute in olive oil to wilt and lightly cook through. Set aside.
Boil your pasta and when cooked al dente, drain but save a little of the cooking liquid to loosen the sauce.
Toss the spaghetti with the sauce, the cooking liquid and the remaining 50g of walnuts, roughly chopped.
Finally stir in the kale and serve with extra cheese!
