I love soup! One of my favorite soups is Zuppa Toscana from Olive Garden. Theres something about making a big batch of soup that just warms the soul. I love making soup on a crisp fall day all wrapped up in a bulky sweater and fuzzy socks.
  • 1 Lb Spicy Pork Sausage
  • ½ Cup Onion, Diced finely
  • ¼ Teaspoon Chili Pepper Flakes
  • ¼ Teaspoon Salt
  • 4 Cooking Potatoes, Sliced
  • 1 large Bunch Kale or 1 Lb package of the baby kale
  • 6 Cups Chicken Stock
  • ½ Cream (if desired)
  1. n a large stock pot add the pork sausage, diced onion, chili pepper flakes and salt cook over medium heat using a spatula to break up the meat as it cooks; cook until the sausage is browned and the onions caramelized.
  2. Wash and dry the kale and potatoes. If you are using adult kale remove the veiny woody part then chop and set aside. Using baby kale is a great way to save time. I love the pre packaged organic baby kale my local grocer sells.
  3. To prep the potatoes just slice them into ¼ inch rounds or whatever shape you like.
  4. Once the meat is cooked add the kale, potatoes, and chicken stock and cook over medium heat for about 45 min or until the potatoes are fork tender. Add the cream if desired and enjoy!
