Zoupa Toscana

I guess this is from the Olive Garden. We had this on Christmas Eve for dinner and loved it.

1 pound hot Italian Sausage- cut into slices
6 slices bacon, diced and cooked
3/4 C diced onion

Cook all these ingredients in a pan and drain the extra grease.

Add:
1 1/2 tsp mince garlic and simmer for 1 minute.
Add:
1 giant can of chicken broth
2 medium potatoes, diced to 1/4 inch.

Simmer for 15 minutes

Add: 2C chopped kale leaves and 1/2 C heavy whipping cream. Simmer for 4 minutes. Serve with grated parmesean cheese.

for a lighter version instead of heavy whipping cream I use a can of evaporated milk. Just as yummy and less calories :o).
