How to make Creamy Italian Sausage and Potato Soup
Step 1: In a large stock pot or Dutch oven, brown and crumble the Italian sausage on medium-high heat. Using a slotted spoon, remove the sausage and let the excess drippings drain from the pot.
Step 2: To the pot, return the sausage. Add the potatoes along with the chicken stock, half tsp salt, and half tsp black pepper. Bring everything to a boil. Once boiling, adjust the heat to medium. Continue to cook for another 10 to 12 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
Step 3: Remove half of the potatoes from the pot using a slotted spoon. Mash the potatoes in another bowl and place them back in the pot.
Step 4: Add the kale or spinach leaves, heavy cream, and extra salt and pepper. Mix well and continue to cook for additional 2 to 3 minutes until the kale is tender.
Step 5: Serve the Creamy Italian Sausage and Potato Soup right away garnished with shredded Parmesan cheese, some freshly cracked black pepper, and a drizzle of olive oil. Enjoy!
