One of my all-time favorites soups is the Zuppa Toscano from Olive Garden. Creamy with a little bit of spice; potatoes, kale, and sausage mixed to create a depth of different textures. I was it were little healthier so I could enjoy it more often!
Side note: Does that little potato skin sticking up in the picture bother anyone else? Cuz I can't stand it! I didn't notice it while taking the pics but as soon as I started editing, it was the first thing I saw! Grrr!
Zuppa Toscano Soup
Recipe adapted from my friend, Lindsey (not sure where she got it from)
3 cups chicken broth
3 cups skim milk or 1 1/2 cups half and half
1/2 small or medium onion
1/2 lb Italian turkey sausage
2 medium russet potatoes, cubed
2 cups kale, rinsed and torn
pinch of crushed red pepper
Brown sausage in a large stockpot. When sausage is cooked, add the broth, milk, onion, and red pepper. Stir to combine. Add the cubed potato and cook for 20 minutes over low to medium heat. Add kale and simmer for about 40 minutes.
