Very tasty even without the parmesan! I cut back the amount of butter which I think helped but will definitely cook this again.

Probably my fault, but I used too much butter and they were pretty much gross. I'm going to try a different kale recipe.

Not sure what happened, but this does NOT make 6 servings! This was my main dish, but barely enough for 2. I had to add sun dried tomatoes, and sliced toasted almonds, to try to stretch it out for my family. The flavor was good....next time lots more kale....it really shrinks down.

Made exactly as recipe called for and it was very, very good.... making it a second time tonight!

This is such a great sidedish with just about anything! Make it just like the directions...no tweaking was needed for me.

I really enjoyed this. My husband and kids weren't thrilled with it but I'm not really counting their opinion on this one. I did use almonds instead of pine nuts.

This was my first time cooking kale and this recipe was simple and let the kale shine. I did use about half the butter called for in the recipe and omitted the parmesan (because we were also having macaroni and cheese). Although my 7 year-old said it was "chewy," she liked it.
