Remove casings from sausage if necessary; crumble sausage into medium nonstick saucepan. Cook on medium heat 7 min. or until done, stirring frequently. Remove sausage from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from pan.
Add onions and garlic to reserved drippings; cook 3 min., stirring frequently. Stir in flour. Add milk and cream cheese; cook and stir 3 min. or until cream cheese is completely melted and sauce is well blended.
Add potatoes, chicken broth and sausage; stir. Bring to boil, stirring frequently. Simmer on medium-low heat 15 min., stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add kale; cover.
Let stand 5 to 6 min. or until kale is softened.
Serve topped with KRAFT Shredded Parmesan Cheese.
Substitute baby spinach for the kale.
Pair with crusty whole wheat rolls.
If necessary, add enough oil to the reserved sausage drippings to get the 2-Tbsp. measure needed to cook the onions and garlic.
