Cooking Steps

  1. Prepare Ingredients

    Prepare Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 400°F. Mince garlic. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp paper towel and thinly slice. Rinse parsnips and cut into ¼-inch slices. Rinse kale and tear leaves into bite-size pieces, discarding stems.
  2. Sauté Vegetables

    Sauté Vegetables

    Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add parsnips and sauté, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add mushrooms, kale, and ½ of garlic and sauté, stirring, until mushrooms are tender, 3-4 minutes more. Remove pan from heat. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
  3. Assemble Casserole

    Assemble Casserole

    Place tin on a baking sheet, reshaping if bent. Spoon ⅓ of vegetables into tin in an even layer. Top with ½ of ricotta and ½ of mozzarella, dividing evenly. Repeat with another ⅓ of vegetables, remaining ricotta, and remaining mozzarella. Finish with remaining vegetables. Sprinkle over ½ of pecorino.
  4. Bake Casserole and Garlic Bread

Remove baking sheet, discard foil from casserole, and set aside garlic bread.
