  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil. Stir in the pasta and return to the boil. Boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but still firm to the bite, about 12-15 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large soup pot; add turkey, onion and garlic. Cook over medium heat until meat browns and onion is soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in sage and rosemary and cook for about 1 minute, do not allow herbs to brown. Pour the stock and water into the pot along with the chickpeas and tomato puree. Bring to the boil and add kale. Simmer until kale softens, about 5 minutes. Season soup with salt and pepper.
  3. To serve, place a serving of cooked pasta in the bottom of a soup bowl and ladle hot soup over.
