When the weather starts to cool off I start craving hearty soups. Soups to warm you up from the inside out and keep you toasty warm all day. Now, I'm not going to pretend that this isn't low fat or that it isn't piled high with calories, because, well, one quick look at the ingredient list, and it speaks for itself.... can we say Italian Sausage and Cream? Need I say more? But honestly, this is all good food here, there's potatoes, kale, onions and tomatoes? Some really delicious stuff here. If you've been following me you'll know that my deal is all about balance. I can't suggest you make this soup every day, that would be too much, but once in awhile this soup is amazing! It's a treat to have this decadent soup.
