Spagetti with Kale and Lentils

I made this the other day when I didn't have much time but wanted something delicious and healthy. It can really be made with any type of pasta and any leafy vegetable. The lentils add the protein for a complete one dish meal. I loaded up with more kale and lentils than pasta, but you could make it with any proportions you want. 

Spagetti with Kale and Lentils
Serves 2

1/2 bag whole wheat pasta
2 cloves minced garlic
1/2 yellow onion diced
1 large bunch torn kale
1 cup lentils
1 squeeze lemon juice
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
Olive oil
Salt and pepper

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook pasta to al dente according to instructions.
Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Add lentils and cook according to instructions.
Heat a few tablespoons of olive oil in a pan. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook for a few minutes until it softens. Add kale and cook until wilted.
Combine pasta, lentils, and kale with any extra oil. Add a few more tablespoons of olive oil if the pasta is dry. Squeeze some lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste, and finish with the parmesan.
