Instructions
  1. Heat a soup pot over medium heat. Add the olive oil and let it get hot. Add the bacon and cook stirring often until it is just crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Set this aside for later.
  2. Add the onions and garlic to the pot and cook until the onions begin to soften and the garlic is fragrant, stirring frequently. This should take 5 minutes or so. Add the kale and thyme and cook until the kale is wilted, another 5 minutes.
  3. Add the chicken stock, cover and bring to a boil. Remove the cover, add the cannellini beans and reduce the heat to simmer. Continue to simmer (about 20 minutes). Meanwhile cook the the pasta.
  4. In a seperate pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Salt the water and add the linguini. Stir occassionally as it returns to a boil. Cook the pasta until it is al dente, about 6 - 7 minutes. Drain the pasta, rinse it in cold water to stop the cooking and set it aside.
  5. Remove the thyme sprig (it should just be a stem) and the garlic cloves from the soup. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  6. To serve, divide the linguini into 4 bowls Ladel the soup on top of the pasta. Garnish each serving with the reserved bacon and the shaved cheese. Sprinkle with a few red pepper flakes if you'd like. Enjoy
