Zuppa Toscana

The Olive Garden restaraunt chain serves this wonderful sausage and potato soup. I don't know if this recipe is identical, but it's very very close.

1 cups sweet sausage links (12 links)
3-4 slices bacon, cut up into small pieces
cup diced onion
1 tsp minced garlic
2 medium potatoes
4 cups chicken stock (1 box of Swanson stock = 4 cups)
2 chicken bouillon cubes
red pepper flakes to taste for heat
2 cups Kale leaves, sliced into thin strips
1/3 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place sausages onto a sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes or until done. Cut into half lengthwise and slice at an angle into " slices.

Cook bacon and onion together until onions are almost clear. Add garlic and cook an additional 1 minute.

Cut potatoes in half lengthwise then cut into " thick slices.

Add Chicken stock, bouillon, pepper and potatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Add sausage, kale and cream. Return to boil, then simmer 5 minutes.

I love the Olive Garden! Everytime I eat there we all end up force-feeding each other our dinners ("You gotta try this!"). I've never ordered anything there that wasn't awesome.
