Pepperoni, kale and potato soup; asparagus - 26 March 2014

Having bought another Molinari pepperoni stick for my pizza Americano the other night, I decided to make this soup again. Differences from the linked recipe: for the stock, I just used one 6-cup can of Swanson’s chicken broth (low salt variety); I forgot the red pepper flakes (it was milder, but still had bite b/c of the pepperoni – a nice variant); I used less pepperoni – something like 6 1/2 inches of the stick – b/c that was all I had left; I added only 1/4 tsp salt at the end, after tasting the soup. 212 more words
