What you'll need:

180 g  Linguine

2  tablespoons  Extra virgin olive oil 

1  medium red onion, thinly sliced 

2  cloves garlic, crushed

2 handful of kale, thick stems removed and leaves torn into bite-size pieces

8 small  grape tomatoes, halved

How it's made:

1. Cook the linguine according to the package directions. Reserve 200 ml of the cooking water; drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
