I had to have the recipe for myself, and searched the web through many similar kinds until I settled on this Zuppa Toscana recipe aka to my family "Potato Soup". I've made it a few times, and every time my husband sighs with pleasure during his entire bowl.
Over and over again I hear him say, "this soup is SO wonderful."
"I love you soo much."
"You know, I think this is probably the best soup I've eaten, EVER."
And another one for fun, "The chef is pretty hot too. "
We've changed up the recipe just a little, mostly because it didn't make enough for my family and for my husband to have leftovers. I also tried to make it a little less spicy. The first time I made the soup, the kids and I could not stop coughing. Every single time I would take a bite, tears would come to my eyes, and I could hardly swallow. It was just that HOT. I think last night I got the soup perfect for every family member, and it's still Titus' favorite soup.
• 8 cups chicken broth
• 1 cup light cream (half & half)
• 4 medium russet potatoes
• 4 cups chopped kale
• 1lb pork sausage
• 1 tsp. salt
• 1 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
Combine chicken broth and cream in saucepan over medium heat. Slice unpeeled potato into ¼ inch slices, then quarter the slices and add to soup. Add the kale. Grill sausage and add to soup. Add spices and simmer for about 2 hours. We've never been patient enough to wait the 2 hours. Usually we make it about 45 minutes and then it's dinner time!
It's a very simple soup to make, and so delicious! There are very few spices, but it has tons of flavor. It makes a perfect food to eat on a cold blizzardy day! Enjoy!
