Sausage & Kale Soup

*sautéed 1/2 onion (chopped)
 end part of a leek (chopped) 
*2 mixed garlic cloves minced. 
*Then added water (about 6cups) & 3    onion bullion cubes. 
*chopped butternut squash
*1 sliced zucchini
*sliced link sausage (2packs)
*boil until everything is tender. 
* added thyme, oregano, basil, s&p. 
*At the end I added about 1/2 a cup of heavy cream
*1/2 cup cream cheese until melted & then added 1/2 bag of kale. 
*Cooked for a few more mins & serve. 

I have lots left over for this week. We have a crazy week with concerts Mon, Tues & Wed.

You could use ground sausage instead of link. 
If you don't want to use heavy cream you can sub it for milk, half & half or coconut milk. 
If you want to add parm cheese on top or goat cheese. You don't have to add the cream cheese if you don't want to.
