John'* room mate Tyson wanted the recipe so I thought I would share it here.
This is a special recipe and is one heck of a good soup. Not low cal though
Making a pot as we speak
1 lb. spicy Italian sausage - crumbled
1/2 lb. smoked bacon - chopped
1 qt. water
2 each 14.5 oz. cans (about 3 2/3 cups) chicken broth

2 garlic cloves - peeled, crushed
1 med. onion - peeled, chopped
2 cups chopped kale OR Swiss chard OR Spinach
1 cup heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper - to taste
