If your anything like my family you love olive gardens soup and salad and your favorite is of course Zuppa Toscana! But we all can’t get the soup and salad every day during lunch for 6.99 or worse 9.99 for dinner so what must we all do? MAKE IT OURSELVES! This recipe I just tried today came from tuscanrecipes.com. Apparently this recipe came from an ex Olive Garden worker. And I’ll tell you what it tastes almost as good as olive garden’s.

Makes: 6-8 servings

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb ground Italian sausage
  • 1½ tsp crushed red peppers
  • 1 large diced white onion
  • 4 Tbsp bacon pieces
  • 2 tsp garlic puree
  • 10 cups water
  • 5 cubes of chicken bouillon
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 lb sliced Russet potatoes, or about 3 large potatoes
  • ¼ of a bunch of kale
  1. Sauté Italian sausage and crushed red pepper in a large pot. Drain excess fat, refrigerate while you prepare other ingredients.
  2. In the same pan, sauté bacon, onions and garlic over low-medium heat for approximately 15 mins. or until the onions are soft.
  3. Add chicken bouillon and water to the pot and heat until it starts to boil.
  4. Add the sliced potatoes and cook until soft, about half an hour
  5. Add the heavy cream and just cook until thoroughly heated.
  6. Stir in the sausage and the kale, let all heat through and serve. Delicious!
