This is a really versatile soup recipe. Add other veges in season, omit the sausage to make a vegetable soup. As written, it's hearty and satisfying.

Delicious! The soup was very satisfying for a meal. I used cabbage instead of kale, because that's what I had on hand, and I also used a nicely flavored smoked sausage with garlic that is made by a local butcher. In a recipe like this, I think the quality and flavor of the sausage really makes a difference. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. We'll definitely make this one again. Made for PAC Fall 2009.
