Portuguese linguica is a delicious smoky sausage, usually sold fully cooked along with the kielbasa, etc in the meat/deli counter. It is pork with paprika and garlic as some of the main flavorings. Kale and beans work well with the smoky porkiness. You could sub any sausage with similar characteristics. One thing I do to lower the fat a bit is to slice the sausage and nuke it on paper towels (covered to minimize splatter) for a minute or so, blot off as much grease as possible, and then use in the recipe.
