In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan and set aside. Reduce heat to low; add onion and pepper flakes to bacon drippings. Cook 10 minutes, until onion is tender and lightly golden. Add garlic during last minute of cooking time. Drain off excess fat.
Return kale, reserved cooking water, and vinegar to skillet. Mix well and heat through. Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
