Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the penne for 9 minutes or until just before al dente.
Chop onion, garlic finely and de-stemmed kale coarsely.
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in a pan over medium heat. When hot, cook onion 4-5 minutes. Add chili flakes, oregano and ground beef. Salt and pepper and cook until browned.
Strain pasta, add meat, diced tomatoes, kale and half the mozzarella. Mix well.
Transfer to a 9x13 baking dish. Sprinkle with panko bread crumbs and remaining mozzarella cheese.
Bake 12 - 15 minutes until cheese melts and panko browns.
