    aHardDaysNight's Note:

    Italian flavors blend in a creamy, satisfying soup that has potatoes, italian sausage, and kale. I like a kick, so I use spicy sausage and add crushed red pepper flakes. The heavy cream really pulls this soup together and makes it restaurant-worthy! Don't forget a fresh, crusty loaf of bread for dipping.

      This soup turned out fantastic. I did a few substitutions to make it a lighter dish. For example I used turkey bacon and I did not put the heavy cream in. It maintained the flavor but removing the heavy cream cut down on the calories.
