This was a really tasty and easy soup to make. I used the Swiss chard because I couldn't find any kale and it worked out nicely.

I made this last night and loved it!  The kale was great and held up really well.  I added whatever other veggies I had in the fridge and added a can of tomato paste to make it taste more tomatoey and it was wonderful.  Thanks for the recipe!

I am going to try this recipe tonight.  It has all of my favorite ingredients; except for the pasta.  I think that I will add  quiona or barley instead of the pasta.  I just bought my first bunch of kale today so I can;t wait to use it.  I will let you know how it turns out!
