Zuppa Toscana Soup
ZUPPA TOSCANA SOUP
1 pound of sausage
1 onion, chopped
3-4 cloves garlic
2 tsp. red pepper flakes
6 strips of bacon, cut up
28 ozs. chicken broth
2 c. water
4-5 small potatoes, cut up (peeled or unpeeled…whatever floats your boat)
1 c. heavy whipping cream
1 bag of baby spinach (you can also use Kale or Swiss Chard)
Cook sausage, garlic, onion, bacon, seasoning, and red pepper flakes in soup pot until browned. Pour a little bit of chicken broth in your pot and scrape of the bits on the bottom of the pan.
Add the rest of your chicken broth and water.
Add your potatoes and cover while on medium heat to get your potatoes tender.
Once potatoes are fork tender, add in the heavy whipping cream and let simmer.
About 5 minutes before serving, stir in your spinach (I chopped mine because my crew isn’t fond of eating ginormous leaves).
Let the spinach cook down and serve with parmesan sprinkled on top.
~~~note, people…there is NO cheese in this soup…the parmesan is totally
mandatory optional. This could be some kind of moment for me…having a soup without cheese.~~~
