Every time we go to The Olive Garden, my husband gets this soup and says, "You need to find a recipe for this." I found this one and have heard really good things about it! I can't wait to try it and see if he approves.
1 lb. Italian Sausage
4 Russet potatoes, peeled and diced
1 yellow onion, chopped
2 tsp. minced garlic
2 cans chicken broth
4 cups water
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
4 slices of bacon, diced
1 cup whipping cream
2 cups fresh Kale
In a pot saute sausage and crushed red pepper together until browned.
Take out of pot and set aside.
In the same pot cook bacon, onion, and garlic for about 10 min.
Add the chicken broth, water and chopped potatoes.
Let simmer until potato is tender.
Add the cream, Kale, and sausage at the very end.
