Hearty and good. When preparing kale, remove the tough ribs, chop or tear the kale as directed, then wash it. If you are going to use hot italian sausage then omit the pepper flakes. If you want the soup a little thicker, you can make a slurry of a heaping teaspoon (regular, not measuring spoon) of cornstarch and a little of cold water mixed into a cup. Dissolve the cornstarch and add to the soup. Or you can mash some of the potatoes on the side of the pot.
