Chicken, Kale, and Pasta Casserole With Cheese

Chopped cooked kale is delicious in this casserole, but chard or spinach could also be used. This is a hearty dish, perfect to serve your family any day of the week—or make it for a potluck or large gathering.

Casarecce pasta is a slightly twisted, open, tubular shape which holds sauce very well. It worked beautifully in this casserole and would be great in a creamy macaroni and cheese dish as well. Feel free to use fusilli, campanelle, macaroni, penne, or similar pasta in this dish.


  • 16 ounces uncooked fusilli, or casarecce pasta
  • 4 tablespoons (2 ounces) unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried leaf thyme
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 cups diced cooked chicken
  • 2 cups frozen kale, cooked, well drained
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup soft fresh breadcrumbs
