If you've ever gone to Olive Garden, they serve a wonderful soup called Zuppa Touscana. We've made Zuppa Touscana Soup a number of times, and it's fantastic! Last week, I made some Italian Sausage, and put some of it to good use today. Zuppa Touscana has Italian Sausage, Bacon, Potatoes, Onions, Chicken Stock, Cream, Spices and some Spinach as a Garnish. Simple to make and incredible tasting! I use Hot Italian Sausage cuz we like the little "Kick" ENJOY! We Did! Todd Here's the recipe from All Recipes.com. I also included a link:http://allrecipes.com/recipe/super-delicious-zuppa-toscana/detail.aspx Ingredients 1 pound bulk mild Italian sausage 1 1/4 teaspoons crushed red pepper flakes 4 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces 1 large onion, diced 1 tablespoon minced garlic 5 (13.75 ounce) cans chicken broth 6 potato, thinly sliced 1 cup heavy cream 1/4 bunch fresh spinach, tough stems removed Directions Cook the Italian sausage and red pepper flakes in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until crumbly, browned, and no longer pink, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and set aside. Cook the bacon in the same Dutch oven over medium heat until crisp, about 10 minutes. Drain, leaving a few tablespoons of drippings with the bacon in the bottom of the Dutch oven. Stir in the onions and garlic; cook until onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Pour the chicken broth into the Dutch oven with the bacon and onion mixture; bring to a boil over high heat. Add the potatoes, and boil until fork tender, about 20 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the heavy cream and the cooked sausage; heat through. Mix the spinach into the soup just before serving.
