Ingredients

1
pound
sweet Italian sausage links, casings removed and broken into pieces
1
large onion, chopped
1
28-ounce can diced tomatoes
2
tablespoons
tomato paste
2
cloves garlic, chopped
kosher salt and black pepper
2
large russet potatoes (about 1 pound)
1
small bunch kale, stems discarded and leaves torn (about 7 cups)
1/2
cup
milk
1/2
cup
olive oil, plus more for serving

Directions

  1. Combine the sausage, onion, tomatoes and their juices, tomato paste, garlic, 1 cup water, and ¾ teaspoon each salt and pepper in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Nestle the potatoes in the liquid and top with the kale.
  2. Cover and cook until the potatoes are tender, on low for 7 to 8 hours or on high for 4 to 5 hours (this will shorten total recipe time). Transfer the potatoes to a medium bowl. Add the milk, oil, and ½ teaspoon each salt and pepper to the bowl and mash.
  3. Serve the stew topped with the mashed potatoes. Drizzle with more olive oil, if desired.
