1/2 lb. hot Italian lean turkey sausage (2 large links)
3 C. fat-free chicken broth

1/4 tsp. salt
Dash of crushed red pepper flakes
1 medium russet potato

Grill or sauté the sausage until cooked. Combine the chicken broth, milk, onion, bacon pieces, salt, and pepper flakes in a medium saucepan over medium/high heat.
