Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Serves: 4-5 servings


  • 1 lb. Italian sausage without casings (mild or hot)
  • 4 cloves of garlic
  • 1 large yellow or white onion, chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh oregano or 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup sun-dried tomatoes
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 bunch kale leaves, chopped (remove and discard stems)
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • shaved Parmesan cheese


  1. Set 6-qt Instant Pot to sauté mode (medium-low). Add Italian sausage to pot and break up with a spoon. Cook until sausage is lightly browned for about 5 minutes then drain any excess fat.
  2. Return sausage to Instant Pot and add garlic, onion, and oregano. Stir constantly until onions become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chicken broth and sun-dried tomatoes; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  4. Cancel sauté mode then select the manual setting on your Instant Pot. Adjust the pressure to high and set the timer for 5 minutes. When time is up, do a quick release.
  5. Select sauté mode and add the chopped kale to the soup until wilted, about 2-4 minutes.
  6. Stir in heavy cream until heated through, about 1 minute. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Serve the Tuscan Sausage Soup immediately with freshly shaved Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
