It's from the blog SkinnyTaste but I can't access it at work so I can't paste the link. The soup is hearty and so delicious!

I just discovered that Target sells Panera soups so that is my recipe :)
I make this one pretty often and it's always a hit (plus it's the only soup I can pass off to hubby as a full meal, which is a big bonus to me!): http://www.skinnytaste.com/2008/04/kale-and-potato-soup-with-turkey.html
I have used turkey sausage as well as regular sausage - both ways are great!
