This Stovetop Kale Macaroni and Cheese is inspired by the Chopped at Home challenge with Sargento® cheese.  For this challenge, at-home cooks are asked to get creative in the kitchen with your best dish, that must include the following ingredients:

  • Sargento® Chef Blends 4 State Cheddar
  • Kale
  • Oyster Crackers
  • Bacon

The dish may  contain other ingredients, but the above must be the focus.  When I first saw this list, I was stumped for what to make. I wanted to be consistent with the theme of the show and make a recipe in (about) 30 minutes using simple ingredients.  Then I thought about one of our favorite recipes, and could not wait to get in kitchen! …

That’s where this Kale and Apple Potato Salad comes to the rescue!…

Mushroom Bolognese Kale Lasagna |

This week the Sunday Supper Movement is joining Gallo Family Vineyards to celebrate an incredible milestone.  Their Hearty Burgundy wine is celebrating its 50th birthday this year!  Today we are sharing ways to pair, cook and entertain with Hearty Burgundy.  For this celebration, I wanted to create something extra special.  While the Hearty Burgundy pairs well with chili, Italian meat sauces and grilled sausages, I thought mushrooms would also pair beautifully with this flavorful wine.

The inspiration for Mushroom Bolognese Kale Lasagna started with a mushroom Bolognese sauce.  It is a chunky sauce made with dried porcini and baby bella mushrooms, carrots, red peppers, red wine and rounded out with mascarpone cheese.   The sauce is wonderful simply served over pasta, but I wanted use it to create something fit for a special celebration.  Something special, like Mushroom Bolognese Kale Lasagna!  This lasagna is filled with layers of ricotta and Parmesan cheeses mixed with kale, mozzarella and the rustic, earthy mushroom Bolognese.  A little extra work goes into making this dish, but it is a labor of love and a delightful way to celebrate the Hearty Burgundy….
