Better than Olive Garden Zuppa Soup from

Better than Olive Garden Zuppa Soup from

This was fabulous!  I doubled the recipe, added 1 bag of frozen onion
instead of fresh, used a package of soft precooked bacon bit pieces and cooked
on the stove top rather than the crock pot. Everyone loved it!

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).
Serve with breadsticks
