Turkey Sausage, Kale and White Bean Soup

This hearty turkey sausage, kale and white bean soup is loaded with fiber and is a very satisfying meal on a chilly evening. Top this with some good grated cheese like Parmigiano Reggianno or Locatelli (I always splurge on grated cheese) and a nice piece of crusty bread for a wonderful meal for 4 under $10.
