Ingredients
  • 1 bag Alexia Foods Italian Saute
  • 2 Italian turkey sausage links - casings removed

  • 8 cups chicken broth - low sodium
  • 15 oz can fire roasted diced tomatoes

Instructions
  1. Heat a large soup pot over medium high and add basil-infused olive oil packet included with Alexia Italian Saute, reserving vegetables.
  2. Add sausage to the pan (casings removed) and use a wooden spoon to break down into crumbles. Cook until sausage is browned then remove from pan and set aside.
  3. In the same pan, saute diced carrots until soft, about 2-3 minutes, then garlic and chili flakes and cook 30 additional seconds to release flavors before adding potato/bean mixture. Saute potatoes and carrots for 7-8 minutes then add sausage back to the pot.
  4. Pour in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add tomatoes, kale and salt/pepper to taste.
  5. Simmer until kale is wilted, about 5 minutes. Check for seasoning then remove from heat.
  6. Serve immediately or see above for freezing instructions to enjoy later.
