what's for dinner.....Zuppa Toscana

The moment there is the slightest chill in the air I pull out this recipe. Alison introduced me to it a few years ago and it is one of my absolute FAVORITES! After falling in love with this soup I realized it is actually a recipe for a soup served at Olive Garden, I don't frequent Olive Garden.
You will need....
1 lb. spicy Italian Sausage (I use pork sausage, but have made it with turkey...not as much flavor)
1 qt. water
4 cups of chicken broth
2 large potatoes (i used 6 small golden potatoes and left the skin on)
2 cloves garlic
1 medium onion
2 cups kale (I use 1 bunch)
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Cube potatoes, garlic and onion and put them in a pot with water and chicken broth on medium heat. Cook until potatoes are soft, from room temperature mine cooked for about 30 minutes.
While that is cooking brown sausage and drain off fat. When potatoes are tender add the sausage and cook for 10 minutes. Then add kale and slowly add whipping cream. Cook until heated through.
SO GOOD! Enjoy.
I love food and wanted to share this recipe because it is "My Dinner Recipe in Pictures" week at I heart faces. Check out the other recipes for a little Fall food inspiration.
