Step 1:

Get a large pot, add a little bit of oil and place it over medium heat. Add the bacon slices and cook until crispy. Once done, remove it from the pot and place it on a plate.

Step 2:

Turn off the heat then add the Italian sausage to the same pot. Break into small pieces and turn the heat to medium. Cook until the sausage is browned, then transfer to a plate.

Step 3:

In the same pot, add the diced onion and garlic paste. Cook for about 2 to 3 minutes. Next, add the better than bouillon roasted garlic, garlic paste, and Italian seasoning. Mix then add salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. If you are using hot sausage, don’t add the chili flakes unless you want it extra spicy.

Step 4:

Add 6 cups of chicken broth or stock and the potatoes and bring to a boil for about 15 minutes until fork tender.

Step 5:

Add back the sausage and bacon. Mix and add chopped kale. Cover with the lid and cook for a few minutes.
