Zuppa Toscana Recipe

zuppa toscana recipe

There are many varieties of this soup out there, here is my take on it! Yummy Zuppa Toscana soup recipe made popular by Olive Garden!

Note: Zuppa Toscana literally means Tuscan Soup in Italian so technically I am calling this recipe Tuscan Soup Soup recipe 😉

To start making this soup, start a pot of water to just boil some potato slices to cook. While they are boiling cook off your Italian sausage, adding in your onion with the sausage.

ground sausage

You will need to rip up your kale into bite size pieces, removing the stems.

Once the potatoes and sausage are cooked, remove them from the heat. Drain the potatoes, then add 2 cups of chicken broth and one cup water to the pot. Add back in the potatoes and drained sausage. Add in the 2 cups of cream or half and half.  Then add the kale and cook for 10-15 minutes on medium low heat.

Rave reviews all around! To add an extra kick to my husband and I’s bowls I just add in a little crushed red pepper to ours. My kiddos are such fans of the heat so I leave it out of the whole pot.  But if your family enjoys heat, then feel free to add a teaspoon of crushed red pepper right into the pot of soup!
