This was tasty and quick to prepare. I used spicy Italian sausage and Great Northern beans (couldn't find cannellini). I also used only 2 cans of beans, 3 seemed like too much. In addition, I included a bit of grated nutmeg when I added the kale. The recipe doesn't say how much chicken broth to use, so I added about 1-2 cups. Could probably have used more, but we like a thick consistency. Parmesan-reggiano is a must with this stew! Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!
