I love this soup! When I fix this soup, it is all my husband and I eat for days. I make a huge pot! To make it a little more healthy, since I am trying to lower my cholesterol, I substitute Hot Italian Turkey sausage. I also use skim milk in place of the heavy whipping cream which makes it much thinner, but still good. I love the Kale, so I add the whole bunch.

I've made this for work potlucks on two occasions. Every time I've made it, I got so many requests for the recipe that I had to send it around in a mass email. Even the first time, when I accidentally used ornamental kale! Anyhow, BRAVO!

AWSOME! This soup was fantastic! I have made this before on my own, but it was nice to find a recipe to follow! I did add 2 extra potatoes to make the soup a bit thicker. Even our kids liked it after tasting (they were leary on the kale).

In a word, OUTSTANDING! My wife and I were feeling homesick, being stationed in Germany. I made this for her and it was like being in the Olive Garden once again. Thanks for the recipe!!!

I am concern with the amount of Fat and Sodium, so I think I will tweak and use Tofu or Vegetarian Italian Sausage instead (tastes just like the real thing) No Bacon, and Vegetable Broth, that should make it more bearable for someone watching fat and sodium.

perfect recipe loved it!!, i added a tbs of crushed red pepper flakes and used hot italian sausage for a little spice and added onion power instead of onion (since my husband hates onions), so it's my way to put the flavor in there without him the wiser :)

The taste was excellent. Make sure not to use to much potatoes. It seems very easy to use to much dry ingredients that fill the liquid quite a bit. I am still pleased overall. Next time I will expand the liquid more.
