Looks yummy easy. My hubby doesn't like cheese much. Would it ruin the recipe to leave out the mozzarella and just use some Parmesan?

Hi there! You can leave out the mozzarella cheese and add Parmesan, and it will still taste delicious. Enjoy!

I love kale and so do our children, but I find that I almost never cook it or cook with it. Well, I am going to try this recipe for sure. I am going to skip the pasta and used riced cauliflower. I have found it works in almost every recipe that calls for rice or pasta. It would cut the carbs considerably. I wonder what else could be used in place of pasta? I am always looking for ideas on that. In any event, this looks delish and will be making it very soon.

I love the idea of using cauliflower to replace rice or pasta. Spiral veggies like zucchini and other squash, yellow, spaghetti would work in many of these recipes. Id probably go with half kale/half spinach for this one.
