Ingredients

  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lb. ground Italian sausage
  • 2 sweet potatoes about 1 pound peeled and diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup small pasta shells
  • 4 cups chopped kale
  • salt and pepper
  • grated parmesan for serving

Instructions

  • Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large pot. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is soft and translucent. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add sausage to pot and break up with a wooden spoon. Cook until browned, about 5 minutes.
  • Add sweet potatoes, broth, and water. Bring to a boil then add the pasta. Cook 3 minutes less than the package instructions.
