Spicy Sausage, White Bean and Kale Soup

Cool weather always makes me crave soups and stews.  They are hearty, healthy and warm you up.  Kale is by far my green of choice for soups since it is so healthy and it doesn’t get slimy the way that spinach does.  This soup is a favorite of mine.  Easy, fast and healthy, it’s perfect for a weeknight dinner.  Add a salad and some bread and you have a great meal.
