Ingredients

  • 1

    butternut squash (about 3 pounds), peeled

  • 1/2

    bunch kale (about 8 ounces), stems and tough ribs removed, leaves torn into large pieces (about 7 packed cups)

  • Unsalted butter, for baking dish

  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 3/4

    cup finely grated Parmesan (about 2 ounces)

  • 1/4

    cup packed small fresh sage leaves

  • 1 1/2

    cups heavy cream

  • 2

    tablespoons panko

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Slice squash just above bulb. Slice squash neck crosswise into 1/4-inch rounds. Cut squash bulb in half lengthwise. Remove seeds with a spoon; discard. Slice each half crosswise into 1/4-inch half-moons. Set a steamer basket in a large pot filled with 1 inch water; bring to a boil. Add kale, cover, and steam until bright green and wilted, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat; let cool slightly. Squeeze dry. Butter a shallow 4-quart baking dish (13 by 9 inches). Arrange half of sliced squash in dish, shingling pieces to overlap. Season with salt and pepper. Top with kale, season with more salt and pepper, and sprinkle with 1/2 cup Parmesan and 2 tablespoons sage. Place remaining squash on top, overlapping pieces slightly; season with more salt and pepper. Pour cream over squash and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sage. Cover tightly with parchment-lined foil and bake until squash is tender, about 40 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with panko and remaining 1/4 cup Parmesan. Bake, uncovered, until golden, 10 to 15 minutes more. Let cool slightly before serving.
