spicy Italian

spicy Italian
You’d think that winter was the season of soups, but I barely recall making any soups during the California “cold” this past year. Instead, in the sunny, beautiful weather of these past few weeks, a deep soup craving has presented itself to me, and I’ve been more than glad to satisfy it eye cream.

The famous Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana is something that almost every woman I know has swooned over at one point or another in her life. This is the soup that introduced a whole group of us to kale for the first time, and what a delicious introduction that was. While I was living with roommates, one of us girls would make a homemade version of this soup at least once every few months.

My own version of this sausage, potato, and kale soup is on the lighter side, so if you’re looking for something a little richer, feel free to add more sumptuous ingredients. Chicken broth adds flavor and thins out the broth, but whole milk still provides creaminess without heaviness, and the potatoes tend to thicken the soup up a bit more. If you’re feeling adventurous, feel free to substitute some of the chicken broth or milk with heavy cream. Also, I like to use chicken sausage (spicy Italian, please!), but pork sausage would make this dish a little richer bookcases.

And finally, if you’re looking for an over-the-top version of this soup that is bound to guarantee a crowd of sleepy dinner guests, you can take a tip from one of my roommates, who would fry up some diced bacon along with the sausage and toss it in the soup otterbox reflex.
