2 Tbsp Olive oil
12 ounces Kielbasa Sausage; fully cooked, thinly sliced
1 Onion; chopped
1 cup fresh fennel bulb; chopped
4 cloves Garlic; minced
1 1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme; chopped
1/2 teaspoon Red pepper flakes
10 cups Chicken broth
4 cups kale; chopped
15 ounces cannellini beans (white kidney beans) can; rinsed & drained
9 ounces cheese tortellini
1 cup asiago cheese; or parmesan cheese, grated

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium-high heat.

Add next 6 ingredients and sauté until vegetables are soft and kielbasa is brown, about 12 minutes.

Add broth and bring to boil. Stir in kale and cannellini. Reduce heat to low and simmer until kale is wilted, about 4 minutes.

(Can be made 1 day ahead. Cool slightly; cover and refrigerate. Bring to simmer before continuing.)

Add tortellini to soup. Simmer until pasta is just tender but still firm to bite, about 5 minutes.

Ladle soup into bowls. Serve, passing cheese separately.

Outstanding. Skipped the beans since it was a warm spring day. Served with warm crusty bread.

Super! Easy to make and very tasty. A quick one pot healthy meal. I added a carrot to the recipe

Delicious! I didn't have fennel and I used spinach instead of kale and it was still fantastic. Great winter soup. Thanks for sharing!

Really good and easy! The fennel added extra flavor. I added a can of chopped tomatoes and two carrots. Needed those extra vitamins!
