    Charmed's Note:

    This casserole is really delicious, and is great if you're looking for a vegetarian meal. It has the added benefit of being low-carb meal, but you can add cooked macaroni to the cheese mixture if you wish. It works well with a variety of greens, but my favorite is spinach. I don't remember where I got this recipe, but I've been making it for a long time.

      Cut out and discard the tough stems of the greens; if using kale or collards, cut out thick center ribs.

    4. 4
      In a large skillet, cook the greens over low heat, adding them by handfuls and stirring them down as they wilt; add 1/2 cup of water if the greens seem dry.
    5. 5
      Cover the skillet and braise for 10 to 15 minutes, or until tender.
    6. 6
      Pour off any liquid left in the skillet, then season the greens with salt and pepper; transfer to a bowl and set aside.
    7. 7
      Heat the broth and half-and-half in a saucepan just until bubbles form around the edge of the pan.
    8. 8

    11. 11
      Whisk in the grated Parmesan and ricotta.
    12. 12
      Stir the greens into the cheese sauce and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.

      Very yummy, and nutritious too!! We used whole cream instead of the half and half and the sauce was wonderfully smooth and creamy and lightly cheesy. The texture reminded me of alfredo sauce. It did slop around a bit as mentioned in other reviews but everyone like it, so thanks for a nice recipe to try!

      The taste of this casserole was lovely: a sort of alfredo-esque sauce complimented by tasty greens. However, the consistency left a lot to be desired. My husband could not abide it. In order to keep this "casserole" from being anything other than a creamed spinach variation, it needs something to hold it together. When I make it again, I will use noodles to see if it will hold a shape. Either that, or I'll add some eggs to it in the hopes that it comes out more custard or souffle like.

      The cheese and greens balance each other nicely in this casserole. I used kale and subbed the mozarella for fontina. Creamy and very satisfying. I really enjoyed the texture and lightness the ricotta leant to this. We also added several cloves of sauteed garlic, which I highly recommend. Comfort food, for sure.
