1

Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Once it reaches a rolling boil, add the pasta.

 

 

 

2

In the meantime, pulse the bread, basil and garlic in a food processor until it resembles coarsely chopped breadcrumbs.

 

3

Place the butter in a large frying pan and melt on a medium heat. Add the breadcrumb mixture and toast until golden and fragrant in the butter. Set aside. Add the chilli and lemon zest. Season well.

 

 

4

Cook the pasta til al dente. Reserve three tablespoons of the cooking water and set aside. Place the kale in a colander and drain the spaghetti over the top so that the kale wilts.

5

Toss the pasta and kale in the breadcrumb mixture to coat. Check the seasoning and serve immediately with a good glug of extra virgin olive oil.

I always have a handful of breadcrumbs stored in a sandwich bag in a freezer, and this is one of the simplest and most effective uses for these stale bread offcuts. When you need an instantly satisfying mid-week supper, this dish can be on the table in under 15 minutes.
