Family friendly chicken and kale cannelloni recipe
May 6, 2016
Do you have a fall-back meal type for quick and easy family meals? Mine is pasta – you already know this if you drop by here regularly. I adore pasta. I love that you can add almost any ingredients together and create a quick, healthy, family meal. It is perfect for using up left over bits and pieces at the end of the week.
Spaghetti bolognese is my boys favourite meal EVER and lasagna is not far behind. Cannelloni is often left out as a meal option because……??? I think it is because it is a little fiddly to prepare. On the flip side it is a great option for providing a little welcome variety to family meals.
I created this recipe to take advantage of the gorgeous capsicums that are providing a steady supply of fruit from our vegetable garden at the moment. The recipe is coupled with new season Tuscan kale. All plates were clean at the end of dinner here when I served this. The image above shows what happened when I taste tested it as I was taking the photographs. I couln’t stop eating it and made quite a mess on the plate. This recipe is destined to be a family favourite.
Our kale is not ready to harvest from the garden but there is an abundant supply of local produce available now that will continue for months to come. This recipe makes a large batch, at least two family meals. It may be frozen if desired.
I used minced chicken breast in this recipe. It would work equally well with beef. This is my recipe for Chicken and Kale Cannelloni. I hope that you and your family enjoy it.
This recipe makes a large amount,designed to serve a large number of people or to be served as multiple meals.
If you wish to create this recipe for a standard meal for a family of four, reduce the ingredients by half.
