You will need:
2 Tablespoons of olive oil (or coconut oil)
1 sweet onion, diced
1/4 t of salt
1/2 t of pepper
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 garlic cloves minced
6 cups of low sodium chicken stock
1 pound of spicy turkey sausage
1 cup of whole wheat orecchiette pasta
4 cups of kale, torn
1/2 cup graded cheese (optional).
Cook and drain sausage. Boil pasta according to directions. While that is boiling, add oil to separate pan and cook onions and garlic til fragrant and translucent, about 5 minutes. I added all of this to the crock pot and cooked another hour or so. You could do on stove as well. My kale was from my garden but it was frozen. I added it to the crock pot and it all turned out fine!
