Welcome to winter-greens week! I’ll be making a new recipe with a different leafy vegetable every day this week. Today it’s in a casserole! Now, let’s get one thing straight: I’m not hiding kale in this dish; in fact, quite the opposite — I’m celebrating it! Kale’s sweet, earthy flavor and bright color really bring out the best in what could be a dull dinner.
Sarah’s Tip of the Day:
As usual, I’m keeping the ingredients simple: butter, onion, and garlic as a great flavor base; kale, pasta (of course), the meat from a rotisserie chicken, ricotta and Parmesan cheeses for that “yep, this is comfort food!” element, and some lemon zest to add a bit of brightness. Watch the video and I’ll show you a speedy way to stem kale and how to cook pasta so that it’s just right for baking. : Save the bones from that rotisserie chicken — they’ll come in handy for a recipe I’m making later this week! Stay tuned.
