Easy Zuppa Toscana Soup

Recently I purchased a new cookbook called Fix It and Forget It Slow Cooker Magic from Hobby Lobby in the fall decorations section. It has 550 everyday crockpot I had to buy it!!! Ironically enough when I made the Zuppa Toscana soup, I was so rushed in the afternoon that I was unable to get the ingredients in the crockpot. So I adapted this recipe into an easy one pot meal that came together in just 30 minutes. It was truly a breeze to cook and the results were delicious!! This soup will definitely be in our regular dinner rotation especially during the cold winter months. We served the soup along with crusty French good!!!

Easy Zuppa Toscana Soup

1 lb. ground Italian Sausage (Mild)
4-6 potatoes, chopped 
1 small onion, diced
3-4 garlic cloves, minced
32 oz. carton chicken broth
1 cup kale, chopped
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 Tablespoons flour
red pepper flakes, to taste
salt & pepper, to taste

In a large soup pot, brown sausage until no longer pink. Add onion and garlic; stir until tender. (5 minutes) Add potatoes to soup pot; then add the 32 oz. carton of chicken additional chicken broth or water if needed to cover the potatoes. Boil for 10-12 minutes or until the potatoes are done. In a separate small bowl, whisk together flour and cream until smooth. Stir flour/cream mixture and chopped kale into the soup pot. Simmer on low for 20-30 minutes until broth thickens slightly. Serve soup in bowls and season with red pepper flakes and/or salt & pepper to taste. Enjoy!!!
