The sun is finally shining in Michigan-yay! We had a rainy spring and I'm so glad to see daylight once again! Even though I'm having a case of spring fever, I'm still craving comfort food recipes. This may seem like an odd choice for a late spring blog post, but if you have some fresh herbs blooming in your garden, you can put those to use in this Sausage and Kale Manicotti recipe. I didn't use fresh herbs, as my garden wasn't intact when I created this recipe, but they will certainly add freshness and a colorful splash to your recipe. That's exactly why I chose Kale to incorporate into this dish. It's lively, fun, and fresh. When cooked, it doesn't have a strong bite to it, as it might in a salad. And it goes well with the Italian spices in the sausages, so that is another big plus of "going green" in this recipe.
So, whether the sun is shining or you're in your flannel jammies reading this post, this is a great all-season recipe. It's hearty and fresh and combines some of my favorite winter and spring flavors. Enjoy!
