Zuppa Toscana

Ingredients: 1 Pound Italian Sausage (I use Hot Turkey Sausage), 2 Large Russet Baking Potatoes (I use at least 7 – slice them in half and then into 1/4 inch slices), I large Onion (chopped), 1/2 can of Real Bacon Bits, 2 Cloves of Garlic (minced), 2 Cups of Kale (or Swiss Chard – chopped), 2 Cans of Chicken Broth,  1 Quart of Water, 1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream (Light Whipping Cream works too).

Method: Cook Sausage in a 300 degree oven for 1/2 hour. Drain on paper towels and cut into slices. You could also just push Sausage out of its casing and cook in a skillet. Place Onions, Potatoes, Chicken Broth, Water, and Garlic in a pot and cook on medium heat until Potatoes are done. Add Sausage, Bacon, Salt and Pepper to taste, and simmer for another 10 minutes. Turn heat to low and add Kale and Cream. Heat through and serve.

I think this tastes better than Olive Garden’s version! EnJOY! Let me know what you think!
