Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup

 We really like this soup and think it tastes close enough to the real thing to pass in our books!

1 lb italian sausage
3 large potatoes, chopped
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 can bacon bits
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups kale or swiss chard, chopped (i've even used spinach in a pinch but the kale gives it a much heartier feel, which i like better)
2 cans chicken broth
1 cup water
1 cup heavy whipping cream

cook and crumble sausage, drain grease

combine onions, potatoes, chicken broth, water, and garlic in a pot and cook over med heat until potatoes are tender

add sausage and bacon bits

salt and pepper to taste

simmer for another 10 min or so

turn to low heat and add kale and cream

heat through, serve and enjoy!
