I have not eaten kale before and although I found the actual kale a bit tasteless the other things I put in this recipe, made the dish a worthwhile one, and one that I will make again.

It is a healthy meal or accompaniment, and the bacon can be left out to make it healthier. Instead of using empty carbs, which pasta is, I have used sweet potato as the noodles.

This is one of the recipes I will "keep" and make again.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 - 20 minutes
Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients
2 - 3 short cut bacon, cut into small pieces
450 g sweet potatoes, peeled
2 small eggs, beaten
cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
About 4 cups kale, chopped

Method
Cook the bacon pieces until they are brown, and add the garlic for the last minute or so..

Using a spiraliser or a julienne cutter, or an ordinary vegetable peeler, cut the sweet potatoes lengthwise into long, thin strands. These are then the "noodles".

Boil some water and drop these sweet potato noodles into it for just a minute.

Keep less than cup of the water they were boiled in and discard the rest, thereby draining the noodles.

Return them to the pot, but not yet on the heat. Add the reserved water, eggs, Parmesan, a bit of salt and pepper to taste, and gently toss using tongs.

Add the chopped kale to the bacon pieces and cook, stirring, until it has wilted - only about 2 - 3 minutes.

Add this mixture to the noodles, put on a low heat, and gently toss to combine.

Cook for a few minutes only and serve with more freshly ground pepper.

I ate it with my spanakopita in this instance.
