In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add sausage and cook, using a wooden spoon to break it up, until browned. Remove sausage to a plate.
Return pot to medium-high and add onion, carrots, celery, and garlic. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne. Cook, stirring until the onions and garlic are softened.
Stir in chicken broth, and add cooked sausage and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook over medium until carrots and celery are tender. Add the kale and beans and cook until the kale is wilted. Season with salt and pepper and serve with a drizzle of oil & Parmesan. Makes about 5 servings.
