Needs: More broth and more time.
Notes: The flavors melded fantastically as this dinner far surpassed my expectations. Meijer Italian sausage is not as good as other brands. I'm not sure if it was my frozen kale or the thickness of the sausage, but it took twice as long to cook in the last step as advertised. I'd also recommend chopping up the Italian sausage before serving.
The making of this recipe was born out of what I happened to have in the refrigerator, freezer, and pantry. Italian sausage, kale, beans, and tomatoes. I cut off some dry spots from the Italian sausage, and pulled our semi-freezer burnt kale from the freezer. I did grow the kale myself so it was of good quality. The recipe called for two cans of white kidney beans, I only had one, so I grabbed a can of butter beans that had been in the pantry for a couple years.
