  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • pinch red pepper flakes

  • Start by by browning the sausage in a large stock pot over medium heat.
  • While it is browning, peel the potatoes. Dice, peel and chop an onion, mince one clove of garlic.
  •  Next clean and chop kale. Remove the stems, chop the leaves into bite sized pieces, set aside.
  • When the sausage is done, add the chopped onions, diced potatoes and spices. Sauté until the veggies just begin to soften. Add the kale, sauté for another minute or two.
