Kielbasa and Kale Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 15 mins

Here's a great recipe I clipped from a magzine years ago and have forgotten about. Can't wait to make it again when the weather is cooler!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put broth and frozen kale (or spinach) into a heavy 4 quart pot over high heat.
  2. Slice sausage into 1/4 inch thick rounds. Add to pot. When mixture boils, reduce heat, cover and simmer.
  3. Meanwhile, rinse and drain beans; add to pot with macaroni.
  4. Simmer 8 minutes or until macaroni is tender.

I made a variation of this with dried white beans, whole wheat pasta, fresh Kale and an herbed chicken sausage. It was a wonderful meal that I had for lunch for days. The only thing I would recommend is to keep the pasta separate from the soup unless it will all be consumed within the first day -- otherwise the pasta gets way too overcooked.

fantastically fast and easy. I used frozen spinach and substituted whole wheat (Barilla Omega-3) macaroni for a little added health boost. I also cut the Kielbasa into half rounds instead of rounds so that they would fit on the spoon easier. The only thing I may change is reducing the amount Kielbasa since as written, it's a very rich soup.
