Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana

Recipe from Robbie's Recipes

Ingredients
1 pound spicy Italian sausage - crumbled
1/2 pound smoked bacon - chopped
4 cups water
2, 14.5 ounce cans (about 3 2/3 cups) chicken broth
2 large russet potatoes - scrubbed clean, cubed
2 garlic cloves - peeled, crushed
1 medium onion - peeled, chopped
2 cups chopped kale OR Swiss chard
1 cup heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper - to taste

Directions

1. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown sausage, breaking into small pieces as you fry it; drain, set aside.
2. In a skillet over medium-high heat, brown bacon; drain, set aside.
3. Place water, broth, potatoes, garlic, and onion in a pot; simmer over medium heat until potatoes are tender.
4. Add sausage and bacon to pot; simmer for 10 minutes. (I may try adding the kale at this point next time that I make this so that it is a little softer.)
5. Add kale and cream to pot; season with salt and pepper; heat through.

Ha....this is great!!! I posted that recipe to Robbie's Recipes several years ago, and I'm not running across it so many places. It really is a GREAT soup and I'm so glad that I figured out how to recreate it.
