Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 2-26 oz cartons chicken stock
  • 1 c heavy cream
  • 4 large potatoes
  • 1 whole bunch kale
  • 2 lb Italian or Spicy sausage (depending on taste)
  • 1 t salt
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)

Because I don’t like spicy like the rest of my family does, I use the Italian sausage and then I serve the crushed red pepper flakes on the side so that everyone can adjust the soup to their own tastes.

Step 2:

This is so good and easy... I used the Harris Teeter meat department's spicy Italian sausage and it totally rocked! Thank you for sharing, I will make this often.
My dad makes this on special occasion and its sooooo delicious! The only problem is that it takes all day to cook but thatsnot too big of a deal.

Looks awesome, I'm going to have to try this. Thanks
I work at olive garden, your recipe is right on. The only differences is that we halve the potatoes then slice them and we don't add the kale until its ready to be served. great instructable
Delicious! I absolutely love that soup! I made my own version but decided to add carrots just for the heck of it!
