1 tbsp olive oil

Heat oil in a skillet; saute the sausage just until the fat is
rendered, about 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on paper towels and reserve.

Bring broth to a boil with the onions and potatoes; simmer 10 to 15
minutes until potatoes are very tender. Mash onions and potatoes in
the broth with a potato masher or slotted spoon. Add drained sausage
slices and the kale. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 3 to 5

spicy your sausage is, add salt and pepper to taste. Serve piping

and good beer or red wine for a complete meal."
