March is winding to a close. Spring is upon us, and little flowers are coming up all over. Only too be eaten by hungry bunnies.
But it is still chilly at times, and the gusty winds of March have softened, but not stopped. So I am warming up with some comfort food.
I chose to only warm up a little and used mild sausage for this and cheddar cheese. But you can turn the heat up as far as you like with hot sausage. And you can take my mother's suggestion and add in hot habanero cheese. Phew!
Sausage and Kale with Cheese Sauce
1 pkg Italian sausage, spicy or mild, your call
2-3 cups fresh kale, rinsed and roughly chopped
1/2 - 3/4 cup shredded cheese, your choice
2 tbsp Italian Herb Olive Oil
pinch of cumin
Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Skin the sausage and break it up into the pan. Saute, stirring occasionally, until it is just about done. This should be around 10-15 minutes, but just check to make sure that most of the pink is gone.
Add the kale and cheese, stirring to fully incorporate. Now add the cumin and salt and pepper. Cover and let cook until the kale wilts and the cheese is completely melted, 2-3 minutes.
