    I think I just found my new favorite way to eat kale. This dish looks wonderful and we are ALWAYS looking for new ways to eat chicken!

    This sounds delicious! I would love to try making a vegetarian version using seitan in place of the chicken. Yum :).

    Hey Alicia,

    How would you scale this back to serve 4?
    Please help! 🙂

    Can this be made the night before without baking and then bake the next day?

    30 ounces of ricotta is 2 containers, is this right, it seems like alot?

    Hi Letitia,

    This was a guest post by Rachel from Rachel Cook’s but I believe that is the right amount of ricotta.

    I made this recipe tonight. It seems like their should be more kale so I actuall y ended up doing 5 cups and I would maybe even do 6 in order to give a nice uniform green look to the dish. So hopefully this is yummy! I didnt see how much this recipe served on the actually recipe and I would scale it back in 1/2 for two people while still having left overs. 🙂

    I thought it tasted pretty good! It was too dry for my liking though. Maybe next time I’ll add some heaven cream to make it creamier.

    I just found this recipe and had to try it. I was concerned it may turn out a little dry so I added about a half cup of Greek yogurt (didn’t actually measure). I’m glad I did- It was delicious! I actually also did half ricotta and half cottage cheese just because I love the texture. This one will be repeated for sure!

    I gave this recipe a try tonight. I love Kale and cheese. I followed this recipe exactly, but my boyfriend and I really were not fans. It seemed kind of dry, which surprised me since there was so much cheese. The lemon zest was overwhelming. I really wanted to like it, but this just wasn’t our thing.

    I think something is missing, I thought it was rather dry, maybe cut back on the amount of pasta. The taste is good, but very dry, maybe save the mozzarella for the top and not cook in with pasta
