Lacinato kale (often sold as "dinosaur kale" or "Tuscan kale") is a little crisper when roasted than ordinary kale, and its shape looks prettier on the plate. Flavor-wise, though, regular kale would be just fine to use. Serve the kale on its own as a snack, or as part of a composed plate with Calvados Pan-Fried Pork Chops and Spicy Roasted Pears.
