Sausage & Kale Soup

1 lb of sausage, casings off (you can use whatever kind of sausage you like- I used mild)
1 bunch of kale, washed and chopped
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 celery stalks and leaves, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 can of cannellini beans, drained
1 bay leaf
1 carton of chicken stock/broth (I used Swanson's)
about a tablespoon of butter
poultry seasonings

In a large pot (like you use for spaghetti), heat up EVOO on medium heat before adding the sausage until it starts to look brown. Add bay leaf and onion to saute about 5 minutes before adding the celery, carrots and garlic for about 5-7 minutes. Add cannellini beans, poultry seasonings and butter. Add kale and nutmeg and saute until the kale starts to wilt down before adding the chicken broth. Bring to a boil on medium high for about 10 minutes before covering for the next 10 minutes, reducing the heat to low to let simmer. Fish out the bay leaf before serving.
