Today my Mom/wedding planner is guest blogging.  She sent me this recipe of a soup she recently made along with the photo.  Mary Ann says that you could substitute either spinach or escarole for kale if you like.

You will need:
4 sweet and 4 hot sausage
2 celery ribs- diced
1 red pepper- diced
2 large onions- diced
4 carrots- diced
1 16 oz package of mushrooms- sliced
1 cup of chopped broccoli
1 small bunch of fresh kale- chopped
1 can of red kidney beans
4 potatoes- diced
1 28 oz can of Italian tomatoes- chopped
1 can of artichoke hearts- chopped
3 cloves of garlic- pressed
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
1 32 oz box of Kitchen Basics beef broth
1 bottle of red wine
1 tablespoon of parsley
1 tablespoon of oregano
red pepper flakes- to taste
salt & pepper
2 tablespoons of olive oil

Step 1:
In large skillet, saute celery, carrots, red pepper, and broccoli in olive oil. When soft add onion, then mushrooms and garlic. 
Step 2:
In large pot, brown the sausage (out of casings). Add kale and steam for 5 minutes. 
Step 3:
