A modest amount of Italian turkey sausage goes a long way in this soup, flavoring the whole pot with meaty, well seasoned savory goodness. We recommend fire-roasted tomatoes for their deep, slightly smoky flavor. If you can’t find them, you can use regular diced tomatoes and add a quarter to a half teaspoon of smoked paprika.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)

Uncooked fresh turkey sausage

8 oz, Italian variety, sweet or spicy

No-salt-added chicken stock

4 cup(s)

Kosher salt

¾ tsp

Black pepper

½ tsp

No salt added diced tomatoes

14½ oz, fire-roasted variety

Uncooked kale

8 cup(s), chopped

Frozen gnocchi

3 cup(s)


  1. Coat a Dutch oven with cooking spray and heat over medium-high. Add the sausage to the pan; cook until browned, 4 to 5 minutes, stirring frequently to crumble. Stir in the chicken stock, salt, black pepper, and tomatoes; bring to a boil. Stir in the kale; return to a boil, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in the gnocchi; return to a boil and cook until the gnocchi floats, 3 to 5 minutes.
  2. Serving size: 1 ½ cups
