Serves 4 to 6
We like the fennel flavor of Italian sausage, but any chicken sausage will work.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound Italian chicken sausage, casings removed and meat broken into chunks
3 cans (15 oz. each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 pound frozen artichoke hearts, thawed and halved
1 bunch chard (1 lb.), stemmed and chopped
Warm ciabatta bread
Heat oil in a large pot over medium-high heat. Cook sausage until browned, stirring often, 10 minutes. Add broth, artichokes, and 2 cups water and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat to a simmer. Add chard and cook, covered, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Ladle soup into bowls and serve with freshly grated cheese and bread.
