My wife and I love the Zuppa Touscana soup at Olive Garden. This is our version, enjoy!
Step 1: Ingredients
Italian sausage sweet, mild or hot
1 sweet onion, diced
3 cloves of garlic, diced
2 containers of chicken broth
6-8 cups of potatoes, cut into one inch pieces
At least 1 bunch of kale
3/4 cup of heavy cream or 1 can of evaporated milk.
Spices to taste:
crushed red pepper
Step 2: Cooking
Brown the sausage in a large pot. Add the diced onion and garlic when the sausage is nearly done. Next add the two containers of chicken broth along with the cut up potatoes. Make sure the potatoes are fully covered - if not add water until they are. Cook the entire pot until the potatoes are soft and tender. Remove from heat source and add in the kale, lightly stirring until all pieces are fully covered and turn bright green. Now, add in your heavy cream and gently mix until the soup is a consistent milky color. Lastly add your spices as desired.
Step 3: Enjoy!
A really delicious treat! We make it thicker than Olive Garden and add way more kale. Hope you enjoy!
