Kale, Potato and Sausage Soup

This weather is crazy in Nashville.  I am going stir crazy in this house.  The snow is so pretty, don't get me wrong but the ice underneath is not cool.  We went to our neighbor's house for dinner last night and I could barely even walk across the front year because it was a solid sheet of ice.  Dave braved the roads this morning to get to work...not sure if he really had to go or if he couldn't bare another day working from home with his fabulous wife! haha!

Anyway, if you are trapped inside this is a great winter recipe.



Ingredients

1 lb Italian Chicken or Turkey Sausage
1 lb Red Potatoes (cut and quartered)
3 Handfuls of Kale
1 sweet onion (chopped)
1/2 tsp. basil
1/2 tsp. oregano
1 Bay Leaf ( I didn't have one so I didn't use one)
3 Cloves of Garlic
5 Cups of Chicken Broth
1/2 tsp. Red Pepper Flakes (Optional_
1/4 cup Heavy Cream ( I used skim milk)
Salt and Pepper
Parmesan Cheese

Directions

Cook Italian Sausage until brown.  Add spices, onions, garlic and cook until you can see through the onions.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in Chicken Broth and Bay Leaf and bring to a boil.  Add potatoes and cook until tender.  Stir in Kale until it is tender. Stir in heavy cream or milk and stir for a minute.  Serve immediately and top with parmesan cheese. 

I served with a grilled cheese and it was amazing!
