Favorite family recipes version of Olive Garden's Zuppa Soup

Favorite family recipes Version of Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana

This is one of our favorite soups. It is the perfect Fall soup.
. but really it is great any time of the year! If you like
 Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana, you are going 
to love this (I think it tastes better than Olive Garden's.
 it's not as watery). This is the same recipe Emily
 posted earlier except I added some bacon and onion.
 So if you don't prefer bacon or onion, feel free to leave them out.

3 cans (14oz) Chicken Broth
2 cups whipping cream
red pepper flakes (to taste)
salt and pepper (to taste)
1 small onion, diced, sauteed
1/2 pkg. bacon (cooked and crumbled)
4-5 cups chopped kale
3 to 4 potatoes scrubbed and cut into slices
 or small chunks (skins left on)
1 lb Johnsonville mild Italian sausage
 (shaped into small rounds, browned, and 
put on paper towels to de-grease... or if you 
are in a rush, just brown the sausage like
 you would ground beef).
Put everything except for potatoes together
 in a large crockpot and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours.
 Add potatoes the last 40-60 minutes
 (if you add them too soon they will get soggy).
