Zuppa Tuscana

I found this recipe on another recipe blog and gave it a try this week. It passed the taste test at our house and earned a spot in my recipe box. It's healthy and delicious! Even the kids liked the kale.

1 lb ground sausage (regular or spicy)

3 large red potatoes, sliced in half and then sliced into 1/4 inch thick slices

1 large onion, sliced

3 cloves garlic, minced

8 cups chicken broth

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 bunch kale, chopped

freshly grated Parmesan cheese

salt and pepper to taste

3/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes (*see note)

Brown sausage in large soup pot. Remove sausage and set aside. To the pot add chicken broth, potatoes, onion, and garlic and bring to a boil. Simmer until potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. Add cream and sausage to the pot and warm through. (Do not boil) Add kale several minutes before serving. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Delicious!!

* If using spicy sausage, you may want to omit the red pepper flakes...unless you like eating fire! :) I used regular pork breakfast sausage and about 1/4-1/2 tsp crushed red pepper (not the flakes). It was just right for us.
