These kale and sausage shells are a lightened and delicious comfort dish that are perfect for cold, winter weather.
This time of year, our favorite recipes are comforting yet light. When it starts to get cold, all we want is comfort food. Although we wish we could stuff ourselves with cheese, carbs and everything bad for us, we have figured out a way to eat comfort food in a lightened way. One of my favorite dishes is a pasta bake with piles of gooey and baked cheese. These kale and sausage shells are our lightened version of that incredible comfort food. Packed with flavorful kale and drizzled with tasty Alfredo sauce, this comforting and delicious bake is completely guilt free.
With the holiday sweets piling around us, something we are really trying to do is maintain making healthy foods. When it gets colder, it is so tempting to make our favorite and not so good for us meals. However, with our attempt to still eat healthy meals, we are having fun making over some of our favorite dishes. After we have made a few, we feel pretty inspired to try some more. If you see more lightened versions of comfort foods appearing on here soon, you will definitely know where that idea came from.
