I let my young son pick out seed packets and he chose kale, which grew like crazy. This hearty soup helped make good use of it and rivals a restaurant version that we love. —Michelle Babbie, Malone, New York

"Awesome recipe. I am making it again this evening for the second time! I add red pepper flakes to the sausage and it is as good as if not better than Olive Gardens "Zuppa Toscana"!

Only about 1/4 tsp - 1/2 tsp depending how spicy you like it! :D"
