    SparkleKristy's Note:

    This is a go to recipe for me for pot luck. It is always a hit. Even among people who don't think they like beans or greens. If I make it as a side dish instead of a main, I substitute quartered sauteed mushrooms for the Italian sausage. The Kale is one of the big bags in the produce section. Of course, you can chop your own. I also roast my own garlic on the weekends and save in a jar. It's really worth it for this dish. This is great on it's own, on top of or with with slices of crusty bread. It's hard to mess this dish up. Just don't under cook the kale or it will be too tough.
