FAQ's

Can I make this ahead of time?

This is a great meal to make ahead of time as it reheats very well. So, if you have to make it in advance, you can store it covered in the fridge and just warm it up for easy leftovers anytime!

Can I use another type of vegetable?

Of course, you can swap out the broccoli or kale for other veggies. For the broccoli, you could swap cherry tomatoes, zucchini, or mushrooms. And for the kale, you could use spinach instead.

Can I add meat?

If you want to add more protein to this meal you could add in chicken or my Homemade Italian Sausage. You could even use precooked chicken or Italian sausages.
