1/2 lb kale (more if you wish)
2-4 tbsp garlic chopped
2tbsp basil PASTE
1/4 cup diced onion
1/4 cup celery
1/4 cup diced carrots
1/2 can diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/2 large can chicken broth
Take the chicken sausage out of the casing and place into about a tablespoon of olive oil.
Brown the sausage then add the kale
Wilt the kale down and add more oil
add onions, celery, carrots more garlic and basil
add tomatoes and the liquid
use the liquid to scrap the brown parts off the bottom of the pot
add broth to cover all the other ingredients.
add a bit of garlic powder, 3 turns of salt and pepper from the Pampered Chef Grinders
Cover and cook about an hour.
Serve with orzo or ditalini pasta and Fresh Locatelli cheese grated on top
