Italian sausage infuses this simple soup with flavor, and you can choose hot or sweet sausage, depending on your taste for heat. It all comes together in under 30 minutes, and is even better after a day or two in the refrigerator.


1/2 tablespoon
olive oil
1/2 pound
sausage, hot Italian (or sweet sausage)
onion (diced)
potato (cubed to make 3 cups)
carrot (chopped)
1 clove
garlic (crushed)
14 1/2 ounces
broth, chicken (1 can)
15 ounces
tomatoes, diced (with juice)
1/2 bunch
kale (sliced)
1/2 teaspoon
oregano, dried (crushed)
1/2 teaspoon
marjoram, dried (crushed)
1/2 teaspoon
1 pinch
red pepper flakes (to taste)


Place a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat, add the oil and crumble the sausage into the pan. Stir as the sausage starts to sizzle, then add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes, until sausage is browned and cooked through. Add the potatoes, carrot, garlic, chicken broth, tomatoes, kale, oregano, marjoram and  salt. If desired, add red pepper flakes. Cover and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. When the potatoes are tender, serve.
