Rachael Ray is one of my favorite food network cook hosts and this is one of her recipes! DELICIOUS! I made it once for a BBQ party I went to and it was gone so fast. Unbelievable. Almost all the ladies there wanted this recipe. I also cooked this for a family, their kids gobbled it up as if it was pizza! It's a great way to use Kale in an absolutely tasty way since kale is very good for you.

So good! I dare anyone to say they don't like kale, after tasting this recipe!

My first time eating kale and I love it! I made this the first time, without substitutions, and again with lower calorie substitutions. Both times, it was really tasty. My lo-cal substitutions were: smoked turkey instead of pancetta and 2% milk instead of heavy cream (use a bit more milk and reduce it more).
