This was SO easy, simple, and absolutely delicious. I like my soup a little more tomato based so I added 2 cans of the tomatoes and less chicken broth. Other than that, no substitutions. So good!

Simple and excellent! Substitued swiss chard for the kale and it worked great.

This recipe is the best. The only change I made is using Jennie O hot turkey sausage links. Very good and spicy. I make it at least once a month.

Easy and delicious. Everyone in the family loves it. Other than the greens, the ingredients are things that I always have on hand. Definitely a keeper!

We had never had kale and I was a little hesitant, but the soup was great! I used dried Cannelli beans, which I soaked overnight, and increased the chicken broth to 32 oz., and simmered the soup for about 2 hours. Next time I'll probably do it in the slow cooker. My husband, son, and I all loved it and we'll definitely have it again!

I made a few adaptations to this recipe to suit my taste. First, I cut up and browned three slices of applewood smoked bacon until crispy. I then added the kale and allowed it to cook down just a little bit. I removed this mixture from the pan and threw in 12 oz of chicken garlic sausage and browned for a few minutes. I then added the beans, tomatoes, broth, and the bacon/kale mixture. I seasoned with about 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Next time I will add about 1 tsp of red pepper flakes and a shot of vinegar to brighten the flavors. Great simple soup!

Made as is and it was quite satisfying. Next time I I will use more heat.

I give this recipe the highest rating because it rates well in two of my most regarded areas. Souper easy. Souper delicious. Love this soup. Made it for my mother-in-law and she was impressed. What more can I say.
