3 links Trader Joe's Italian Sausage
1.5 lb bag Baby Potato Medley
10 oz bag Tuscan Kale
2-3 cups Trader Joe's Chicken Stock or Broth
4 oz heavy cream
Splash dry white wine (optional)
Trader Joe's Basil Pesto
2-4 cloves garlic, chopped
1 onion, chopped
21 Seasoning Salute
Salt & Pepper
Optional garnishes: Parmesan cheese, red pepper flakes or chili oil
Split sausage in half with a knife and remove film/casing. Add sausage to a large, heavy pot and cook over medium-high heat. When it is brown and almost cooked through (5 mins), remove from pot
While sausage cooks, cut potatoes in half. Add them to the pot when the sausage is done. Cook them until they form a brown crust, about 2-4 minutes
Add a slash of wine (if using), garlic and onion. Cook until onions are softened, another 2-3 minutes. Add seasonings to taste (21 Seasoning Salute, Salt, Pepper)
Add 2-3 cups of broth and reduce heat to medium-low. Cover and simmer mixture until potatoes can be pierced easily with fork, about 15-20 mins
Add sausage and as much kale as you would like! Cover and simmer until kale is tender, 3-5 mins
Add the finishing touches! Complete the dish with cream, a few tablespoons of pesto, parmesan, and a squeeze of lemon
Serve and Enjoy!
Using the saute function, follow steps 1-3 from the stovetop directions
After adding the broth, put the lid on and cook on high pressure for 5 minutes
If potatoes need more time, cook on high pressure for 2-3 more minutes
When potatoes are tender, switch instant pot back to saute to complete steps 5 and 6.
