1 cup sliced turkey kielbasa (about 6 ounces)
2 tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed
8 cups 1% low-fat milk
2 pounds cubed peeled baking potato

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat until hot. Add kielbasa; sauté 10 minutes or until done. Remove kielbasa from pan. Heat oil in pan over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add milk, potato, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until potato is very tender.
