Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana

Props go out to my friend Matt who dug this one up for a mutual friend of ours who has more kale than she knows what to do with. This and some bread sticks and I’m in heaven.   

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

Directions:

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!
