bulk Italian sausage
low-sodium chicken broth
red pepper flakes, or more to taste
ground black pepper
torn kale leaves (bite-size pieces)
I subbed hot turkey Italian sausage, omitted the pepper flakes, and used Yukon gold potatoes. These were my only alterations from the recipe. As far as the directions go, my potatoes were done in 15 minutes, and I did not add any milk or half and half until the end of the cooking, when I allowed them to heat through, but not boil. This has an amazing aroma as it cooks, and it is a hearty, satisfying soup. Do not be concerned by the lack of added salt, because the broth and sausage are salty enough to flavor the whole batch. DH and DS approved!
This soup is great and I've been making this for twenty five years. I don't use ground sausage, but use Kielbasa Sausage and use more kale than indicated. My family loves this!
Good flavor. Substituted chicken sausage, 2% milk and fat free half and half, only 2 cups. Very thin, so next time will use the full fat half and half and more chicken sausage. Followed suggestion of others to add milk products at end and heat thru.
I have made this soup but not from this EXACT recipe. It's pretty much the same, except I added a lot more kale. Like the other reviewer, I wouldn't add the milk/half & half til after the potatoes and kale have cooked. It would curdle and I'm always a clutz on the stove top with boiling (I have a 2 yo, that helps distract me :) Love that I'm getting all the vitamins and yumminess in one bowl! Hubby could have done without the kale, but he also would eat bacon by the pound if he could!
