I was debating between another recipe and this one and am very pleased on choosing this one! Although I did make a couple minor changes, it did not alter the basic flavors that the creator intended, therefore the high rating. Did cut back on the amount of pepper called for, no potatoes on hand so that was omitted, and finally thought a little additional flavor would enhance the broth so i added a small amount of dried crushed rosemary. Will be using this one again for sure!

I thought it was quite good except the amount of pepper must have been a mistake. I think a tablespoon should be replaced with a teaspoon of black pepper. I had to more then double the amount of broth to make it edible and I like spicy food.

This is a wonderfully hearty soup. I increase the beans to two cans and omit the pasta. Sometimes I add a few red pepper flakes to turn up the heat. My son asks me to make this soup on a regular basis.

I was recently introduced to kale and wanted to find more ways to use it. This was a great way to incorporate it into a soup! I did make some substitutions/omissions based on what I had. I used fresh kielbasa instead of the smoked, fully cooked kind because I was out (I think mild Italian sausage would probably also be great), and I also was out of potatoes. I sauteed the onions and sausage in the oil, then added the carrots, and then the kale, before finally putting in the broth. Once that came to a boil I added the macaroni and garlic (without letting it simmer 45 minutes), which was cooked in about 9 minutes, and lastly I added the beans. So it ended up being a quick, delicious, nutritious soup, and my husband raved about it all evening. We forgot about the parmesan, but I'd like to try that on it next time.

What a great recipe! I made just a couple of changes, mostly out of availability of items. I did use 4 cups of chicken broth and 2 cups of water because we wanted it more soupy. I used some ham in place of sausage, added about 3 ribs of celery chopped along with the carrots and other vegetables, and decreased the salt to 1 tsp and the black pepper to 1 tsp also. My husband could not get enough of it! It had good flavor and is versatile enough to accommodate your personal tastes (bolder, hotter, spicer, etc.) I do have to say the kale is essential to the flavoring of this dish. A wonderful hearty, warming soup or stew (depending on your amount of liquid). Served it with a warm out of the oven crusty bread! Yum! Yum!

Very good soup. It may seem like too much kale when you put it in, but give it a few minutes to wilt and stir it in. Comes out perfect. The only thing I added extra was 1.5 more cups of water near the end. The salt in the recipe probably could have been omitted.

My family really enjoyed this dish. I left out the potatoes and used bow tie pasta. Was great!

This is my new favorite soup recipe. DELICIOUS. You could make this exactly as is and it would be SUPERB! That said, I personally left the pasta & parmesan out and it was still perfect, didn't even miss it, and healthier :) I also used ground italian sausage just cause that's what I have - IF you do this, reduce the salt, or eliminate it all together and add to taste. SUPER flexible - add more of whatever veggie you want and just bump up the liquid if necessary, I'm thrilled I tried this.
