Health Highlights


1/4 cup Basil, fresh (chopped)
1 leaf Bay leaf
8 cup Chicken broth (stock), low sodium
1 can(s) (16 oz) Diced tomatoes, canned
3 clove(s) Garlic (minced)
454 gm Italian pork sausage (rolled into 1/4 tsp balls)
1 1/2 cup Kale (chopped)
1 tbsp Olive Oil, Extra Virgin
2 cup Pasta, tortellini with cheese filling
2 cup slices Red bell pepper (diced)
1 dash Red pepper flakes
1 dash Salt and pepper (to taste)
1 small Yellow onion (diced)


In a large skillet, brown the mini sausage balls until cooked through. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Drain off the grease and place the sausage balls on a plate lined with paper towels.

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in the red peppers, bay leaf, and red pepper flakes. Cook until peppers are soft, about 3 minutes.

Stir in the broth, tomatoes, and kale. Add the cheese tortellini and cook until tortellini is tender, 7-8 minutes. Stir in the fresh basil and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in the mini sausage balls and heat until warm. Remove the bay leaf and serve.
