Sausage and White Bean Soup with Kale and Basil Pesto

This simple soup incorporates great northern beans, Tuscan kale, and pork sausage. Chef Scott Samuel adds some pizzazz to the ground pork by adding traditional Andouille flavors: paprika, cayenne, thyme and sage. He suggests swapping spinach for kale in case it is not available. Chef Samuel developed this recipe for a high school foodservice audience.
