  4. Remove and put in boiling stock.
  5. In the same skillet add olive oil and cook Italian sausage (with casings removed).
  6. Add garlic with the sausage and cook until sausage is done and the consistency of ground hamburger meat.
  7. Add mixture to the stock.
  8. By this time check to see if potatoes are cooked by trying to squish them on the side of the stock pot.
  9. When they are done reduce heat and add cream and Swiss chard, salt, anise, red pepper, black pepper.
  10. Serve with garlic bread or corn bread (or even better an herbed Parmesan corn bread).
