  • 3 bunches of kale, washed, stalks trimmed by 2 inches
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole-wheat flour
  • ¼ cup plus 5 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 bunch scallions, white and light-green parts only
  • 1 cup mixed fresh herbs (thyme, parsley, marjoram)
  • Salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup ricotta cheese
  • ½ nutmeg, grated

Instructions

  1. Place the greens in a large pot. Add 3 cups of water, cover and set over medium heat. Bring to a boil and cook for 12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer to a colander. Once cool, wring out the greens to remove as much water as possible.
  2. Mix the flours and 2 teaspoons salt until combined. Add 1 cup cold water and 1/4 cup olive oil and mix on medium speed for 8 minutes. Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces and let rest for at least 10 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Place half of the greens in a food processor and pulse until the pieces are about the size of a grain of rice. Transfer to a large mixing bowl. Repeat with the remaining greens. Process the scallions and herbs to a rough paste and mix into the greens. Stir in the egg, cheeses, 3 tablespoons olive oil and nutmeg. Season to taste with salt.

Flour a flat surface and roll one of dough balls into a circle about 16 inches in diameter, 1/8- to 1/16-inch thick, and lay it on the cookie sheet. Scoop the filling onto the dough and spread it evenly to 3/4 inch from the edge. Add more flour to the surface, roll out the second ball of dough and drape it across the filling.
