How to make Creamy Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Step 1: In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, brown and crumble the Italian sausage over medium-high heat.

Step 2: Use a slotted spoon to remove the cooked sausage from the pot. Drain excess grease.

Step 3: Add the sausage back into the pot and add in the potatoes, chicken stock, half teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon black pepper. Bring the mixture to a boil. Adjust the heat to medium and continue to cook for about 10 to 12 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.

Step 4: Remove the potatoes with a slotted spoon. Transfer into a bowl and mash. Add the mashed potatoes back to the pot.

Step 5: Add in the kale or spinach leaves followed by heavy cream. To taste, season with more salt and pepper. Stir and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes or until the kale is tender.

Step 6: Garnish with shredded Parmesan cheese, freshly cracked black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil before serving. Enjoy!
