Start by washing, de-stemming, and slicing your kale into ribbons.

Heat the butter, olive oil, garlic, and red pepper flakes over medium heat.

Add the kale ribbons to the garlic butter, and sauté until the kale begins to soften.

Pour the heavy cream into the kale. Reduce the heat to medium, and let the kale simmer for 2-3 minutes.

Add the cooked pasta to the kale mixture, along with the lemon zest and Parmesan cheese.
