Shannon's Kale, Bean, and Sausage Soup with Parmesan Cheese
Shannon's verdict: "The recipe actually calls for escarole but my grocery store didn’t have any so I used kale instead. Normally, the old me wouldn’t have even looked for escarole and would have automatically reached for spinach instead. But part of the point of this blog is to try new things and expand my palette so instead of taking the easy way out with spinach, I turned to kale, which I don’t think I’ve ever eaten before. A nutritious leafy green, kale wilts easily like spinach so it works well in soup like this. Mixed with sweet turkey sausage, fennel, and cannellini beans, this soup is satisfying and exactly what I want on a chilly evening. Overall Rating: Love it."
