Method

  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the onions, thyme and some seasoning. Sauté for 10 mins until softened, then add the chilli flakes, vinegar, sugar and stock. Increase the heat and cook for another 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, boil a large pan of water, add some salt and cook the spaghetti following pack instructions, adding the kale for the final 4 mins of cooking. Drain and return to the pot with a little of the cooking water. Tip in the onion mixture and half the cheese, and toss together. Serve topped with the remaining cheese.

Loved this! I used white spaghetti as that was all I had, be GENEROUS with the cheese!

This tasted pretty bad, not sure why - looks like the tastes of the vinegar, kale and red onions don't really play well together. I even threw away the 2nd portion as felt sick after the first. Sorry!
