How to Make Creamy Potato and Italian Sausage Soup


  1. Combine ALL ingredients into a large, non-stick, soup-pot EXCEPT for the CREAM AND KALE
  2. Bring ingredients to a boil then reduce heat to LOW.
  3. Add enough CREAM to cover ingredients. Keep covered and cook until potatoes and onions are done. DO NOT ALLOW THE CREAM TO BOIL AS IT WILL CURDLE AND NOBODY LIKES THE LOOK OF CURDLED SOUP!!!!
  4. At the very last 5 minutes before serving time, add in the KALE strips on the top of your soup. Keep the pot covered for about five minutes to WILT your KALE strips and then serve!
  5. This soup really BEGS for a fresh loaf of kalamata olive bread or garlic clove bread from your kitchen or local bakery ... Don't forget the sweet cream unsalted butter to go with that :)
