  • Serves 4
  • Preparation time 5 mintues
  • Cooking time 10 minutes
  • 400g spaghetti or linguine
  • 400g cherry tomatoes, roughly chopped in half
  • Zest of 2 large unwaxed lemons
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 2 heaped tsp sea salt
  • 1 × 400g bag of kale or spinach, tough stalks removed and leaves roughly torn
  • Parmesan cheese (optional)
  1. Fill and boil a kettle and get all your ingredients and equipment together. You need a large shallow pan with a lid.
  2. Put the pasta into the pan, add the tomatoes, the lemon zest and the oil and salt. Add one litre of boiling water, put a lid on the pan and bring to the boil. As soon as it comes to the boil, remove the lid and simmer on a high heat for six minutes, using a pair of tongs to turn the pasta every 30 seconds or so, as it cooks.
  3. Once the pasta has had six minutes, add the kale and continue to cook for a further two minutes. Once almost all the water has evaporated, take the pan off the heat and divide into four bowls. Top with a little parmesan to serve.
