We are always on the hunt for easy and delicious and unique ideas to share with our community and when we spied these Sweet Potato Kale stuffed shells on the Barilla FB Page, we got a tad excited.

As mentioned we are huge Barilla fans in our house. We like the way the pasta comes in a box and the Wholegrain Penne is our absolute favorite. It holds together really well and has a lovely nutty flavor. It’s available in a Gluten Free version too.

TO START
Preheat oven 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Cut sweet potato in half lengthways. Lay cut-side up on the lined tray. Spray with olive oil and season. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until softened and lightly golden.

  • 2 COOK THE MUSHROOMS
    Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, for 3-5 minutes or until softened. Add mushroom and garlic, cook, stirring, for a further 4-5 minutes or until softened. Stir in the kale for 2 minutes or until just wilted. Season well. Fold through half the pesto.

  • 3 MAKE THE STUFFING
    Use a spoon to scoop out the soft sweet potato flesh, leaving a 5mm-thick shell. Add the sweet potato flesh and half the cheese to the mushroom mixture. Gently toss to combine. Spoon the mushroom mixture into the sweet potato shells, piling the filling high.

  • 4 BAKE AND SERVE
    Dollop the remaining pesto over the potatoes. Sprinkle with the walnuts and remaining cheese. Spray lightly with oil. Bake for 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the potatoes are golden. Sprinkle with the micro herbs.
