Kale and courgette buckwheat pasta

Ingredients (2 large portions)
100g kale
2 courgettes
Juice and zest of 2 lemons
1 tbsp ground pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
100g buckwheat pasta

Place your pasta into a large pan of boiling slightly salted water
Bring to the boil and simmer for 8minutes (or according to the packet)
Whilst the pasta cooks, wash and tear up your kale
Place it into a large bowl with the lemon juice and zest, the pepper and the oil
Massage the dressing into the kale for a minute to help soften the kale
Using the julienne peeler, peel the outer sections of the courgettes and place into the bowl with the kale (its best to chop the strands up a little to make them easier to eat)
