  • 1 lb. package Italian Turkey Sausage casings removed (or regular Italian Sausage)
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 garlic cloves minced
  • 8 oz package of sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • 4 cups chopped kale large stems removed
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup penne noodles
  • 15 oz can Northern Beans drained and rinsed
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Heat a large soup pot over medium heat, spray with olive oil, and cook sausage until no longer pink, between five and seven minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Add the crushed red pepper flakes, garlic, and mushrooms, breaking up the mushrooms as you add them. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the mushrooms are soft, about five minutes.
  • Toss in the kale and cook until the kale is bright green, about three minutes.
  • Add the chicken broth, and bring it to a boil. Then add the noodles and cook about a minute shy of the package directions.
  • Toss in the beans, and stir in until they heat through.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
