- Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to the boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
- Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic and red chilli flakes. Cook and stir until the onion has softened and begun to turn golden brown, about 5 minutes. Stir in capers, anchovies and tomatoes, and bring to the simmer. Stir in kale, and simmer over medium-low heat until wilted and tender, about 10 minutes.
- Once the pasta has cooked and been drained, stir into the puttanesca along with the black olives. Toss and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving.

Fantastic flavour! I used less oil and cheese to lighten the recipe and - traditionalists, close your eyes! - I eliminated the anchovies. Instead, add 1 Tbsp tomato paste, 1 Tbsp extra capers, 1 Tbsp balsamic vinegar to cover the texture, saltiness and tang of the anchovies. Also used extra kale as others have suggested. Really delicious dish!-04 Dec 2007
