Creamy soup filled with Italian sausage, potatoes, kale, spinach, and bacon. This zuppa toscana soup is savory and comforting, perfect for a cold winter day.
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 large onion, diced

  • 2 large russet potato, diced
  • 1 bunch kale, stripped and torn
  • ¾ cup heavy cream
  • 4 slices of cooked bacon

  1. In a large pot, add a little bit of olive oil and warm over low to medium heat. Once the olive oil has heated, add Italian sausage to the pot. Cook the Italian sausage until it has almost completely browned. Transfer the Italian sausage to a plate for now.
  2. Add onion to the pot and cook until they have softened, then add minced garlic and cook until they become aromatic. Season with salt and pepper. Add chicken broth and potatoes and cook until the potatoes are tender about 20 minutes or so.
  3. Stir in heavy cream, sausage, kale, and bacon. Let it simmer for a few minutes. When ready to serve add fresh spinach, and stir until the spinach has wilted.
  4. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. Serve the zuppa toscana soup warm.
