A rich and creamy, hearty and warming soup.
A famous Olive Garden soup.
Through all of this COVID19 biz, staying at home,
I think that there is a peacefulness of slowing down,
buying less, and just having the basics,
and being grateful for everyday.
Less pressure and being positive about it all.
I find myself in the kitchen more.
More at home time for social distancing requires no eating out at restaurants.
Looking for hearty recipes, I searched for inspiration on Pinterest.
I found Zuppa Toscana a Copycat (Sausage, Potato, and Kale Soup).
Zuppa Toscana is a rich and creamy soup
made with Italian sausage, potatoes, and kale.
It’s a copycat recipe of the soup at Olive Garden.
Zuppa Toscana is easy to make, all done in one pot.
Cooked sausage and onion
Added tablespoon of flour to the sausage
Slowly add the chicken broth to the incorporated flour,
stirring constantly to thicken.
Add the cream and stir very gently.
Just some of the ingredients I used.
I switched up the recipe a bit by using spinach instead of the kale
and Half & Half in place of the heavy cream.
I used the regular Italian sausage that I had on hand.
I also modified the amount of ingredients since there is only two of us.
Recipe is found at https://thefoodcharlatan.com/sausage-potato-and-kale-soup/
I served the soup with French bread.
It’s soooooo yummy!
Maybe not the most healthy, but it’s delish.
Definitely a warming, comfort food!
Stay healthy, stay at home!
Thanks for stopping by.
