  • tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground pork sausage
  • 1 pound small new potatoes, sliced into thin circles
  • 1 bunch kale, trimmed and chopped (remove stems)
  • 8 cups chicken stock
  • 1 cup dry white wine
  • 1/4-1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper


  • Heat a large sauce pot over medium heat and add the oil, onions, and garlic. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, then add the sausage to the pot. Brown the sausage and break it apart with a wooden spoon into small pieces.
  • Once the sausage is brown, add the potato slices, chopped kale, chicken stock, wine, and crushed red pepper. Bring to a boil, reduce heat if needed, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • When ready to serve, stir in the cream and parmesan cheese. Then taste and season with salt and pepper as needed.
