  12. elizabeth says:

    Any thoughts on making this ahead and freezing?

  13. Cindy says:

    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?

  16. Jene Woods says:

    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!

  19. Krystine says:

    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.

    It tasted like farts

  21. Cynthia Berberich says:

    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

    I made this for the first time a couple weeks ago and I’m obsessed! I add hot sauce on top when I eat it because in my mind, everything cheesy goes good with hot sauce 🙂 but even without it, it’s so good.

    The recipe is super easy to customize. I ended up doing a GF version and just using 2ish cups of brown rice and also added some broccoli just because I love it. Also for some reason (COVID-related I’m sure) the grocery store hasn’t had ricotta cheese for weeks, so I used a mixture of small curd low fat cottage cheese, goat cheese, and greek yogurt instead, and still so good! I think next time I’m going to try a ratio heavier on the cottage cheese and greek yogurt with only a little goat cheese (or ricotta if they have it!) to see if an even healthier version will taste as good.

    I love this recipe so much I’ve already made it twice! I’m not much for cooking, so I made some extra this last time to freeze. This is my new favorite way to eat kale 🙂 Thank you!!

    I made this recipe last night and it turned out horrible. It was bland. The noodles were mushy. All I could taste was the lemon zest. I am upset that I wasted all of that cheese. I had to throw it all away and I really hate to waste food. I do not recommend this recipe.
