Ingredients
1 cup (about 6 ounces) cubed PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® Fully Cooked Polish Kielbasa Pork Sausage, 2/12 oz.
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 rib celery, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme
8 cups sodium-reduced chicken broth
1 bay leaf
3/4 cup orzo
4 cups chopped kale
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Instructions
1 Heat oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven set over medium-high heat. Add the sausage, onion, carrot, celery, red pepper, garlic and thyme. Cook for 5 minutes or until vegetables start to soften and sausage is golden brown. 
2 Pour in the broth and add the bay leaf; bring to a boil. Add the orzo and kale. Reduce the heat to medium; simmer for 8 to 10 minutes or until the orzo is al dente and vegetables are tender. Stir in the parsley, salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
3 Tips Substitute baby shells or alphabet pasta for the orzo.
4 Serve the soup with crusty bread for a satisfying supper. 
5 Prepare a double batch and freeze half to have on hand for busy weeknights.
