Soup Week – White Bean Kale with Sausage

20161026_205657Soup Week continues – tonight’s entry is my favorite of the week so far! White bean kale and sausage, a great combination. I think this will be the Halloween Night meal. We found the kielbasa at Whole Foods and it was a good one. Kris agreed this is a keeper!¬†20161026_204208The Dutch oven is getting a workout this week. One great thing about ¬†making soup every night is you do not need to dirty many pans! Clean up is a breeze. Serve this soup in a large bowl and top with some parmesan cheese and you will be satisfied. Cheers!
