Hot Italian Sausage with Tomatoes and Kale

This stew-ish dinner of hot Italian sausages and greens couldn't be easier and it's absolutely delicious.  The sausages flavor the whole dish with their spicy flavor, so use milder sausages if you don't like heat.  My mom invented this dish, and I'll definitely be making it myself in the future.  Because of the heat, these sausages and greens are nice with a mild side dish like mashed potatoes.

Hot Italian Sausage with Tomatoes and Kale
Serves 2-4 (depending on how many sausages each person wants)

Olive oil
1 onion, minced
4 hot Italian sausages
1 can diced tomatoes
1 bunch kale, stems removed and leaves chopped
Salt and pepper

Heat oil in a large skillet.  Add the onion and saute until softened.  Add the sausages and saute until browned.  Add the tomatoes and kale, and toss/stir frequently until the kale is wilted.  Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until the kale is tender and the sausages are cooked through.  Season with salt and pepper.
