Spicy Prawn Linguine with Kale

Before we start the Linguine vs Spaghetti argument, this meal requires the extra width Linguine brings to the table (get it?). Not to worry, you can still enjoy the recipe if Spaghetti is what you have at home. Enjoy hot prawns spiced with cumin and garlic and be careful not to choke your neighbours with the rich aromas unleashed as the prawns cook in wine.
