  • 1 lb Italian sausage (mild or spicy, according to your preference)
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups water
  • 4 large russet potatoes, peeled and sliced thin
  • 2 cups kale, chopped
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: red pepper flakes for a bit of heat


  1. Cook the Sausage: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the Italian sausage and cook until browned, breaking it into crumbles with a spoon. Remove the sausage from the pot and set it aside, leaving the drippings in the pot.
  2. Sauté the Aromatics: In the same pot, add the diced onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute until fragrant.
  3. Add the Liquids and Potatoes: Pour in the chicken broth and water, then add the sliced potatoes. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 15 minutes.
  4. Add the Kale and Cream: Stir in the chopped kale and let it cook for about 5 minutes until wilted. Add the cooked sausage back into the pot. Stir in the heavy cream and let the soup simmer for another 5 minutes.
  5. Season and Serve: Season the soup with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes if desired. Serve hot with a side of crusty bread for a complete meal.


  • For a healthier version, use turkey sausage and substitute half-and-half for the heavy cream.
  • Make it gluten-free by ensuring your sausage and broth are gluten-free.

Enjoy this delicious and easy-to-make Zuppa Toscana with your family and friends. It’s the perfect dish for a chilly night or whenever you need a little comfort food. Happy cooking!
