To make this mouthwatering Zuppa Toscana soup, you’ll need the following ingredients:
- 1 lb hot or mild Italian sausage
- 1 onion, diced
- 3 cloves minced garlic
- 6 cups chicken stock
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 5 slices bacon
- 2-4 russet potatoes
- 3 handfuls chopped kale
- 2 tbs better than bouillon roasted garlic
- 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
- Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes (to taste)
These ingredients work together to create a harmonious blend of flavors that will tantalize your taste buds and leave you craving for more.
Now, let’s dive into the cooking process and see how you can bring this delicious soup to life in your own kitchen.
Start by cooking the bacon in a large pot over medium heat. Once it’s cooked, remove the bacon and set it aside for later use.
In the same pot, cook the Italian sausage, breaking it up with the back of a wooden spoon, until it’s browned and no longer pink. This should take about 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the cooked sausage to a plate to drain any excess fat.
Add the diced onion and roasted garlic base to the drippings in the pot and cook until the onion is soft. Then, add in the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, which should take around 1 minute.
Now, it’s time to add the chicken broth and the sliced potatoes to the pot. Let them cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, which should take approximately 20 minutes.
Stir in the chopped kale and the heavy cream, and bring the soup to a boil. Once it boils, reduce the heat to a simmer and let it cook until the kale leaves are tender and bright green.
Finally, season the soup with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes, according to your taste preferences. This will help enhance the flavors and make the soup even more delicious.
To add an extra touch of flavor and visual appeal to your Zuppa Toscana soup, consider garnishing it with some shredded Parmesan cheese. Sprinkle a generous amount of Parmesan cheese on top of the soup before serving. This will add a delightful cheesy layer that complements the other flavors in the soup perfectly.
In conclusion, Zuppa Toscana is a timeless recipe that never fails to satisfy. With its rich flavors, hearty ingredients, and creamy texture, it’s no wonder Mr. Make It Happen could eat this soup every day and never get tired of it. So, if you’re in the mood for a comforting and delicious meal, give this easy Zuppa Toscana recipe a try. Your taste buds will thank you!
