Soup Recipe for a Cold Day

Here is a wonderful soup for a cold day! The best cream based soup from Olive Garden. Making it yourself is easy and saves you so much money in the long run. If you have a SlapChop or some version of it, making this soup becomes an even bigger breeze!


Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana

1 lb. Italian Sausage

2 lg. Baking Potatoes, sliced in half, then in 1/4 in. slice
1 lg. onion, chopped
1/2 can Real Bacon Bits

2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Cups Kale or Swiss Chard, chopped
2 cans Chicken Broth

1 quart water
1 Cup Heavy Whipping Cream

Cook sausage in a 300 degree oven, about 1/2 hour, drain on paper
towels and cut into slices.

Place onions, potatoes, chicken broth, water, garlic in pot and cook
on medium heat until potatoes are done. Add sausage, bacon,
salt and pepper to taste and simmer for another 10 minutes.
Turn to low heat, add kale and cream. Heat through
and serve.
