Using kitchen shears (or a knife), cut the bacon into small pieces and put them into a pot. Take the sausages out of their casings. I lightly slice the sausages length-wise with a sharp knife to make a slit in the casings, and then it's really easy to get them out. I then use my fingers to break the meat into bite-size pieces and add them to the pot as I go.
Cook the bacon and sausage on medium-high heat for about 10-15 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until all the fluid has evaporated and the bacon is crispy and sausages are browned. You may want to reduce heat to medium once the frying really gets going.
Meanwhile, chop onion and remove kale from stems (tear into bite-size pieces).
Once bacon and sausage have cooked, add the water, chicken broth, cream, onion, garlic, rigatoni, Italian seasoning, and pepper. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-high. Cook with lid off, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes.
Add in the kale and cook for an additional 10 minutes or so, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced to a level you're happy with and the pasta has cooked.
Serve immediately with freshly grated parmesan cheese.
