This could be the healthiest spaghetti there is. At least, it is if you leave out the bacon. But this gives the dish a special note, so I'd only recommend the meat-free version to vegetarians. Curly kale is a superfood and contains important nutrients, antioxidants, minerals and dietary fibres, as well as being packed with vitamins (vitamins C, A and K, and folic acid). Walnuts, too, provide many nutrients, protein, vitamins and minerals. The same goes for aronia berries, which support our immune system thanks to their vitamin C content. With this dish, we're ready for winter.
