100g Walnut Pieces

Jo Arnell makes Pasta with Kale, Stilton and Walnuts

This is almost as simple as Kale Carbonara, but I tend to lightly steam the kale for 3-4 minutes before adding to the pan of drained, cooked pasta. While the pasta is cooking, put the cream in a pan and bring gently to a simmer. Crumble in the cheese and combine. Drain the cooked pasta quickly and put back in the pan, leaving a little of the cooking liquid. Add the other ingredients and mix them all gently together. Serve immediately.
