3 large Russet potatoes
1 lb ground Italian Sausage (mild or medium)
1 1/2 tsp crushed red peppers
1 cup (half pint) of heavy cream
1/4 bunch of kale

 

Directions
1. In large saucepan, cook bacon, onions and garlic over low-medium heat for 10 minutes or until onions are soft. Meanwhile, slice the potatoes with the skins on.
2. Add chicken bouillon and water to pot and bring to a boil. Add sliced potatoes and cook until soft, approximately half an hour.

Spicier To make this dish spicier add 2 Tbsp crushed red pepper and use medium ground Italian Sausage. This will give more of a hot, zesty kick to this filling soup.

I often freeze the leftovers to save for a day when I’m feeling under the weather. Nothing taste better than a delicious, homemade soup when your feeling under the weather. Best part is, all you have to do is heat the soup up.
