    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I made "Beans and Greens" with dry white beans and kale, onions and garlic from the garden. I has a white sauce. Thrifty beyond belief!

    This looks good and I have put up tomatoes from the garden last year too. The kale just keeps growing and growing. Winter sure doesn't seem to bother it!

    Ahh we didn't plant kale last season. I must get my DH to plant some this season. I just can't believe how good this looks! And it is super thrifty, and kale is a powerhouse of a vegetable.

    I still have some tomatoes in the freezer, I wish I had kale now too. Looks like I'll be waiting awhile to try this.

    If you try it, please let me know how you like it.
