Zuppa Toscana

I have been trying to figure out hos to eat kale in our family.  So far this is the only recipe that has been successful!
Zuppa Toscana

  • 7 C Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 small onion, diced, sauteed
  • 1/2 pkg. bacon cut into small pieces
  • 4-5 cups chopped kale
  • 1 lb  mild Italian ground sausage cut into pieces
  • 3 to 4 potatoes scrubbed and cut into small chunks (skins left on)
  • Heat a fry pan to about medium heat. Cook the sausages, bacon and onion till browned. Then remove to a plate lined with paper towels to de-grease.  If you skip this step you will have a small layer of grease on top of your soup like in my picture.  Tastes great, but doesn't look so nice.
  • Put everything in a large pot and bring to a boil and then simmer till potatoes are tender, around 1 hour.
