Zuppa Toscana Recipe

If you like Olive Garden, then you've probably tried their Zuppa Toscana soup, yum! This summer I really got started into blogging and ran into this wonderful blog. This recipe is taken from Fav Family Recipes, with her version of the soup. I made the soup and it tastes extremely similar, maybe even the same!

  • 3 cans (14oz) Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • Red pepper flakes (to taste)
  • Salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 small onion, diced, sauteed
  • 1/2 pkg. bacon (cooked and crumbled)
  • 4-5 cups chopped kale
  • 3 to 4 potatoes scrubbed and cut into slices or small chunks (skins left on)
  • 1 lb Johnsonville mild Italian sausage (shaped into small rounds, browned, and put on paper towels to de-grease).
  • Put everything except for potatoes together in a large crockpot and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours. Add potatoes the last 40-60 minutes (if you add them too soon they will get soggy).
This is a great recipe for a rainy day like today. You can cook it in your crockpot early in the day and enjoy it at night. Thanks FavFamilyRecipes for this great recipe!
