Sausage with Bulgur and Kale

If you're looking for a great New Years Resolution dish this is a great place to start. Lean protein, leafy greens, tomatoes and whole grains are all things we should be eating more of.

I used Trader Joe's Chicken Sausage with Chipotle which gave the dish quite the kick. I'd like to try it again with basil pesto for a milder dish.
