Sweets & Greens *All Together Now*

Marty Hufnagel


This healthy dish is very versatile and easy to throw together. The meat can be changed to any kind of sausage and kale would work for the greens. If you can tolerate cheese, it would be very tasty sprinkled over the top.

You will be amazed at the beautiful presentation. The colors are so vibrant!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
What a vibrant dinner. The aroma from the Italian sausage cooking and the seasonings was amazing. I couldn't wait to taste a bite. It's got a kick of Cajun seasoning I particularly enjoyed. This recipe is healthy and easy to make. A win-win!

cloves garlic, minced
1½ lb

1 bunch
collard greens
1-2 pinch

Directions Step-By-Step
