Anyone make this? Sounds yummy. A good way to get some kale in the diet...

Zuppa Toscana: Italian potato sausage soup
(like Olive Garden's)

I've made it also, we like it. I've used lean hot italian sausage and spinich before and served a warm crusty bread with it.

Our family really enjoys this one, too. Been using a copycat type recipe for years with kale.

Well, then I'm gonna try it. Smile

I don't think I've ever had kale. Is it bitter?

I haven't noticed any bitterness in the kale I buy.

My sister-in-law and I "disected" this soup at Olive Garden. She wrote down her version, and I wrote down mine. We compared notes and came up with something very similar to that in the link posted.

This is GOOD soup! Makes we wish I had some NOW! We have a family reunion in October and DD and her family will be spending the night. Supper will be a light affair at home after all the reunion food. I think it will be this with some good crusty homemade bread!

I think I'll pick up the ingredients to have on hand and when it cools down again prepare some.
It's been forever since I've had it at home, but always when we go to Olive Garden which wasn't too long ago.

I love kale too. I make turkey soup and put a whole bag in, it shrinks down to almost nothing, but it gives it such a good taste. The Toscana soup sounds delish, it's my favorite soup at OG.

This soup recipe is next up on my stack of recipes for preparing. All ingredients on hand, and so this will finish the bunch of fresh kale.

I just love fall fresh produce both fruit and vegetables. Think apples, cranberries, acorn & butternut squash, tomatoes, raspberries.

A colleague just dropped off more goregous tomatoes and Liberty apples. She had me come out to pick up orchard fresh apples Sunday. After apple crisp, then I'll do French Apple Cake, chunky apple walnut cake, applesauce, apple pie pastry squares; I'm still going to have apples left.

Nance,

Thanks for posting. I just had this soup for the first time a few weeks ago and it was delish!

You're welcome BR.

I saw a lg bag of Kale at Sams and said to hubby, "Wish I knew what to do with that stuff. I heard it's good for us." So, guess where I'm going tomorrow??? Smile
