Loved it!! Only things I did differently was use 1 tsp. of red pepper flakes instead of 1-1/2 (for my kids) and I also substituted collard greens for the kale. Served with breadsticks and a salad....definitely will make again!!

This is a very good recipe. Could not find italian sausage so I used andouille. This mod worked fine. I like it spicy so when I make it again I will double the red pepper.

Question....has anyone had left overs? Made the soup the night before for a potluck? How does the kale work out the next day? Still good?
