I couldn't find pasta shells or even manicotti shells, so I made this into a lasagna instead: worked out nicely, and the filling is nice and creamy. Don't be afraid of the chilies: the heat level is mild and a necessary layer of flavor.
Definitely something new and different! We really loved it!
Fun to put this together. The fact that Whole Foods had all the ingredients helped immensely. JH
Truly wonderful dish, as is. Lacinato kale, Calabrian chilies, cannellini beans were all inspired choices. Broiling at the end gives it a lovely crunchiness. Perfect spiciness. Great dish.
Made this last night exactly as written. Delicious! Cut recipe in half since there's only two of us. We like spiciness, wo will add more crushed chili next time.
Made it as written except made my own marinara sauce and could not find the pepper in the recipe so used jarred Piquillo peppers instead. Very tasty and looked wonderful to serve. Even better the next day. Once you clean and cut up all the kale, the recipe is not hard. You do use multiple bowels, a food processor and a big pan, so a little more to clean but totally worth it. Wonderful for vegetarian alternative to stuffed shells
