Sausage and Potato Soup with Kale

Soup is wonderful!  I can eat it every day, all year long.  It’s so comforting.  I came up with this when I was looking for something new to do with potato soup.  I think this soup will be loved by the whole family.  So, eat up and enjoy!

6-8 servings 
approximately 30 minutes cook time

Ingredients:
2 pounds mild Italian sausage, bulk or links, chopped
2 pounds red potatoes, diced
4 Cups broth, use your favorite (I used vegetable broth)
2 Cups water
3 Bay leaves
1 Onion, diced
3 Cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 cups Kale, chopped
2 Cups heavy cream
1 Tbs olive oil

Directions:

In a large skillet, over medium heat, cook sausage until brown.  Remove from skillet and drain on paper towel.

While sausage is browning, in a large stock pot, heat olive oil, add onions and garlic.  Cook until translucent.  Add broth, water, bay leaves, potatoes, salt and pepper.  Stir together and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are fork tender.  Add sausage and kale, simmer for 5 minutes.  Turn heat to low and stir in cream.  Heat for 3 minutes, DO NOT BOIL.  Cream will curdle if boiled.  You just want to heat the cream.  Turn off heat and ladle into bowls.   I sprinkled cheese over top of soup after ladling into bowls but I found it was good without it too.        Serve and Enjoy!
