Italian Sausage and Kale Soup Recipe





1 pound bulk hot Italian sausage

6 cups chopped fresh kale

4 large carrots, finely chopped (about 3 cups)

1 medium onion, chopped

3 garlic cloves, minced

1 teaspoon dried oregano

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon pepper

5 cups chicken stock

Grated Parmesan cheese



In a large skillet, cook sausage over medium heat 6-8 minutes or until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles; drain. Transfer to a 5-qt. slow cooker.

Test Kitchen tips

Cannellini beans are a fine substitute for great northern beans, so use what you have on hand.

Turkey Italian sausage is a great alternative in this recipe, too.
