  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir sausage in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes. Add onion and garlic; saute until onion is translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain and discard grease.
  2. Place potatoes in a slow cooker (such as Crock Pot(R)). Add the cooked sausage and onion mixture. Season with salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes. Pour chicken broth on top. Add up to 2 cups water to cover potatoes fully. Stir soup gently. Cover and cook on Low until potatoes are fork-tender, 5 to 6 hours.
  3. Pour heavy cream into the soup. Stir in kale to combine. Cover and cook on High until flavors are incorporated, about 30 minutes more. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.
