Italian Zuppa Toscana Recipe

Italian Zuppa Toscana

Hi everyone! Wanted to give you this gem we have held onto privately in the Davis Household.  Hope you love it as much as us. Cut down on the Red Pepper Flakes or you may be sorry!

2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 large yellow onion, chopped

2 -32- ounce containers organic chicken broth or homemade.(64oz)
4 medium potatoes, peeled and diced into 1-inch cubes
4 cups kale, chopped, stems discarded
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
 pinch of red pepper flakes
1lb of Davis Meats Sweet Italian Sausage (Bulk)
1/2 cup heavy cream

In a large pot, saute onion in olive oil over medium heat until onion becomes translucent–about 10 minutes. Add broth, potatoes, kale, sea salt, pepper, and pepper flakes then bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the sausage until browned in a pan over medium heat, breaking up with the side of a wooden spoon. Once cooked thoroughly, add the sausage and cream to the soup. Heat to desired temperature and serve with grated Parmigiano-Reggiano on top. Enjoy!
