You can get this on the table and finish eating dinner quicker that you can drive through anywhere! This is my current go-to quick comfort food dinner, and now that the holiday season is in full swing, who doesn’t need easy yummy recipes at your fingertips?

Serves 4 to 6, as a main course, more as a side dish

8 ounces cooked sweet Italian sausage, without casings
4 cups diced kale
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cans (15 ounces each) white cannellini beans, drained
2 ounces Parmesan Cheese, grated

Place sausage and kale in pot and break sausage into small crumbles with a fork or potato masher, cooking over medium high heat until lightly browned, about 2 minutes. (NOTE: If your sausage is very lean, you may need to add a little oil to cook it.)

Add chicken stock and beans, turn heat to high and bring to a boil. This will take about 3 minutes.

Turn off heat and taste and add salt and pepper to taste as desired. Garnish with Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.

Crusty French bread optional, but encouraged.
