Zuppa Toscana

Zuppa Toscana

This recipe is a copycat recipe of my favorite soup at Olive Garden. I have to say that my homemade version is much better than the original as I add a lot more meat and a LOT more kale.

1 pound Italian sausage
2 large potatoes, sliced in half, and then in 1/4 inch slices
1 large onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 cups kale or 2 cups Swiss chard, chopped
2 cups chicken broth
4 cups water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Salt & pepper to taste
Pinch, or more, of red pepper flakes

Chop or slice uncooked sausage into small pieces. Brown sausage in your soup pot. Add chicken broth and water to pot and stir. Place onions, potatoes, and garlic in the pot. Cook on medium heat until potatoes are done. Salt and pepper to taste. Simmer for another 10 minutes. Turn to low heat. Add kale and cream. Heat through and serve.
