Amazing man!

I make a version of this with cauliflower instead of potatoes which comes out great!
If I want to further reduce the carb count I use Swish Chard to further reduce the carb count. It's a little misconceiving that kale has more net carbs in it than you would imagine so I switch to a lower green that does the trick!

I am a soup LOVER and this one is one that is in my top 5 of soups :)
I didn't know that about the chard. And I do like it. Thanks for the tip. And the compliment

I highly suggest you sub the potatoes for cauliflower whole florets and stalk pieces u cut ourself from a head of cauliflower (or just buy frozen florets). The beauty of cauliflower is how it absorbs all those other flavors and is pretty close to feeling like potatoes minus the starchiness :)

I made this last week, also. Used hot Italian sausage and 1/2 t. red pepper flakes. Guess I don't have your constitution, Steve; it was a little spicy even for me. Still delicious, however! I will just tone down the future versions a bit.

Thanks! You could probably leave the red pepper flakes out. And still have enough heat.

Thats my go-to soup when I’m dragged to the Olive Garden, but was always sure it could be made better ... think yours (and with some other comments) checks that box.

Like!

I made it (sorta) last weekend. Somehow I overlooked the red pepper flakes. It really needed some. The recipe doesn't say hot ITALIAN sausage. I used a different hot sausage (kinda Tasso flavored). It wasn't hot enough to overide the absence of red pepper flake. The potatoes just pulled the flavor outta most of the other ingredients. Bacon was texture only and not one I needed.
Still an excellent soup !! I'm gonna try again with Hot Italian and the Pepper flakes, but save the bacon for breakfast.

My bad I guess. I assumed Zuppa Toscana was a give away to the sausage required. As far as the bacon goes. That's up to you. And thank you for the compliment!

No worries, I got tunnel vison when I read Potato and Sausage. I saw the Zuppa Tuscana and turned a blind eye.

Well this sure as hell didn't disappoint. Thanks for the recipe steve. This is going in our permanent winter rotation. For those who haven't tried it you are missing out. Perfect heat and oh so flavorful
