Directions

  • Heat broiler on high.
  • In an oven-and-broiler-safe deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat, about 2 minutes.
  • Add the beef. Cook, stirring to break up and crumble the beef, until no longer raw, about 5-7 minutes.
  • Stir in the salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and oregano.
  • In batches, stir the kale into the beef mixture, cooking just until it slightly wilts.
  • Stir in the marinara sauce. Cook until heated through, about 2 more minutes.
  • Mix half the cheese into the mixture.
  • If not using a broiler-safe skillet, transfer the mixture to a broiler-safe dish. (Use a nonstandard 9″ X 7″ dish or a close standard size dish, such as a 8″ X 8″ square 8″ baking dish).
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Broil just until cheese is melted, about 1 minute. Allow the kale casserole to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
