Yummy Soup and A Rainy Seattle Day

Today's weather is so blah but you know what?! I LOVE it! I am a huge fan Fall days sometimes. The kind that make you want to cozy up with some good music, bake, build forts with your kids, wear socks, snuggle and watch a movie, and eat homemade soup and bread... mmmmmm. 

Last Saturday I made a batch of Zuppa Toscana soup, just like the kind at the Olive Garden. It turned out so yummy and SO simple! Here is the recipe I used:


  1. 1
    Chop or slice uncooked sausage into small pieces.
  2. 2
    Brown sausage in your soup pot.
  3. 3
    Add chicken broth and water to pot and stir.
  4. 4
    Place onions, potatoes, and garlic in pot.
  5. 5
    Cook on medium heat until potatoes are done.
  6. 6
    Add sausage and bacon.
  7. 7
    Salt and pepper to taste.
  8. 8
    Simmer for another 10 minutes.
  9. 9
    Turn to low heat.
  10. 10
    Add kale and cream.
  11. 11
    Heat through and serve.

    Buon Appetito!
