About this recipe: This yummy soup with sausage and curly kale in a rich tomato base with cannellini beans is delicious!
For an even heartier meal, try adding 200g of a small pasta shape of your choice.
to clarify the directions...I pinch the sauages to form "small meatballs" and dropp them in the oil, cook till no longer pink... I also add some sort of small pasta. either tublini whatever is in the cabinet. I have made this a TON of times, its a quicker way to make escarole soup the "cheater" version...LOL hope you enjoy as my family did.... :o) - 25 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I omitted the tomato sauce, and added a couple of cloves of garlic to the sausage and it was so delicious - my friend and her 2 year old daughter both loved it as well. Make sure you note Melanie's added instructions to pinch the sausage into small meatballs and fry in oil, also add a small pasta (I used tubettini) towards the end of cooking. - 05 Feb 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
YUMM!!! This soup is delicious! The whole family loved it (me, hubby and a 1yr old). The only thing we did differently from the directions: The store was out of Cannellini beans (white kidney), so I got pale red kidney beans instead. - 04 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
