Home Cooking’ – Zuppa Toscana Soup!

Have you ever wanted to go out for a hot, warming meal but it was cold out so you didn’t want to leave the house? We have a great solution! It’s our own version of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana Soup. It only takes about 45 minutes to cook. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 32 oz. Chicken Broth
  • 32 oz. Water
  • 5-6 medium sized potatoes
  • Bacon
  • Sausage
  • Kale
  • 1 cup Heavy Whipping Cream
  • Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Red Pepper Flakes
  • Shredded parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  1. Slice potatoes into roughly quarter-inch thick slices (doesn’t really matter as long as they’re similar sized for cooking).
  2. Brown sausage in pot to be used for soup.
  3. Cook bacon in whichever method you prefer (use as much as you want, the more bacon the better, right?)
  4. Removed cooked sausage from pot, and poor in chicken broth and water. Add potatoes, then salt, onion powder and garlic powder (minced garlic or chopped onions are also fine).
  5. Heat to a boil and cook until potatoes start to get soft.
  6. While the potatoes cook, chop up kale into small pieces. When potatoes begin to soften, add kale, bacon and sausage to the soup, along with red pepper flakes to taste.
  7. Turn heat to low and allow to simmer for a few minutes.
  8. Add 1 cup of heavy whipping cream.
  9. Allow the soup to heat through, then season to taste (occasionally it needs a little more salt or red pepper flakes).
  10. Serve into a bowl, top with shredded parmesan cheese, and enjoy!
