  • 5 links sweet Italian sausage, cut into chunks
  • 1 large sweet onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 1 lb fresh kale, washed and chopped
  • 1 quart chicken stock
  • 1 15.5 oz can cannellini beans

  • Preheat a large soup pot. Drizzle with olive oil.
  • Brown the Italian sausage. Add the onions and garlic; sauté until tender.
