A waste of good beans. Thank goodness I made it as a side dish rather than a main, so we had something else to eat. Otherwise, we'd have been ordering a pizza. Nobody took more than a bite. Extremely bland and oddly vegetal tasting--and we like kale a lot.

Made this dish and is very good. There is no pasta as the title says ...bean casserole. the only adjustment I made is I used 1 can of white beans and used 2x the kale just as a personal preference. the flavors are spot on.

The picture and description indicates that this is a "baked pasta dish", however there is no pasta on the ingredient list. How much pasta is needed? Looks great and would like to try it. Thanks! Linda
