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.
