My husband is a huge fan of the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe, so I created a knock off version that is delicious! If you have never had this soup then you are missing out. The soup has a creamy base with potatoes, kielbasa sausage and some melt in your mouth cooked kale. Please do me a favor and make this soup for dinner tonight. You can thank me later.
Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe:
1 package sausage
3-4 Red or Russet potatoes
1 garlic clove minced
1/4 finely diced onion or onion dry flakes
3-4 tbsp bacon bits *optional
2 Cartons 32 oz chicken broth
1 cup heavy cream
1/4 bunch of kale
Slice up your sausage. Place sausage in frying pan with a little olive oil and fry till browned. Then add the chicken broth, sausage, onion, garlic, bacon bits and sliced potatoes to a crock pot.
Slow cook (see my favorite 6 qt. crock pot here) for 4-5 hours. Add the kale and heavy cream for the last 30 minutes.
Serve and enjoy! Makes enough for 6 people.
I’m telling you… this stuff is so good.
