The health benefits are extensive, with a single serving providing 100 per cent of your daily value of vitamins A and K, as well as 80 per cent of vitamin C. Tender butternut squash and creamy cheese ravioli balance the earthiness of the kale. Top your kale ravioli with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and you’ve got a superstar meal.
