Zuppa Toscana-like Olive Gardens

Zuppa Toscana
1 pound Italian sausage- I use turkey sausage
Red pepper flakes if you want some spice
1 large onion
1/2 cup white wine
2 huge russet potatoes halved and cut into 1/4in pieces
1/2 bag. Oscar Meyer Real Bacon Bits
4 cloves garlic, minced
a fe
w handfuls of chopped kale
3-4 cups chicken broth
a few cups water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
Saute sausage in large pot. Then remove sausage with slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. In the same large pot saute onions until translucent. Add white wine to get every thing unstuck from the pan. Then add, potatoes, chicken broth, water, and garlic in a pot and cook on medium heat until potatoes are done. Add, bacon and salt, and pepper to taste and simmer for another 10 minutes. Add more chicken broth if needed and put the sausage back in the pot. Turn to low heat; add kale and cream and red pepper flakes if you want that spice. Heat thoroughly and serve.


  1. oh that looks really tasty. I really like to say the name of this.

  2. I've got to admit, that does look good. My mind is processing how I could make it vegan...
