  • Brown meat with onions and garlic in large skillet; cool.
  • Meanwhile, add kale to large pan of boiling water; cook 2 min. Drain; immediately add to bowl of ice water. Remove from ice water; drain well. Carefully open kale leaves; place on clean kitchen towels, pressing lightly to flatten. Cover with additional towels; pat gently to remove excess water.
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Pour pasta sauce into 13x9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray. Add 1/2 cup shredded cheese, Parmesan and egg to meat mixture; mix well. Spoon onto kale leaves, adding about 3 Tbsp. to each. Tuck in both short ends of each leaf, then roll up starting at one long side. Place, seam sides down, over sauce in dish; top with remaining shredded cheese. Cover.
  • Bake 45 min. or until heated through, uncovering for the last 10 min.
