  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, massage the kale with the olive oil. Place half of it on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Roast for 10 minutes, then toss and roast for another 5 to 10 minutes, until crispy.
  • In a large skillet (you can use an oversafe skillet or transfer everything to a baking dish), heat the butter over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in the flour to create a roux. Cook until the roux is slightly golden and fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes. Very slowly stream in the milk and cream, whisking the entire time, so the mixture thickens. Cook, stirring over, until the milk coats the back of a spoon. Stir in the nutmeg and mustard powder until smooth.
  • Reduce the heat to low. Stir in the cheese, one handful at a time until melted. Stir until you have a smooth cheese sauce. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Stir in the cooked gnocchi and the roasted kale. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish if needed. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs on top. Top with the massaged kale that hasn't been roasted yet.
  • Bake the mac and cheese for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the cheese is bubbly and the kale is crispy. Serve immediately.
