Zuppa Toscana

My cousin gave me this recipe that is for a knock-off of an Olive Garden Soup. It is absolutely delicious. It has a great mixture of great tastes that are very different from my typical soups.

1 1/2 c. ground sausage
6 slices bacon
3/4 c oinons diced
1 1/2 tsp minced garlic
1 qt chicken broth
2 medium potatoes
2 c. kale (collard greens, chard)
1/3 c. cream
Parmesan cheese to garnish

Cook sausage, drain off grease. (it is tasty with big chuncks) Cook bacon and crumble then set aside. In a soup pot use some of the oil from the bacon and cook the onions and garlic until translucent. Add chicken broth and potatoes. Simmer about 15 mn. until potatoes are tender, then add bacon, sausage and kale and cream. Simmer 5 minutes. Garnish with parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
