Great tasting and very easy to make. I used hot turkey sausage and half and half instead of the cream. For personal taste, next time I will use less sausage and add more potatoes and kale just because I preferred to eat more of them over the sausage.

If using bacon, I suggest crumbling it and leaving it to the side and just sprinkling some over your bowl when you're ready to eat. This way it stays crunchy.

This soup is really delicious. I used 3 pieces of real bacon, fried and then chopped fine. Hubby, who normally wouldn't touch kale, loved it too.

Superb. I added some red pepper flakes to the finished product. Everyone, even the kids, love this one. But we love Olive Garden, so this was a hit.

This is the best soup ever!! As my grandchildren say "Its sick" (meaning great) and it is the best way to get them to eat vegetables without a hassle! We all love it and it is so easy to prepare, thank you Olive Garden!!!

This is the best soup. I make it in 1 pot. Less mess. Brown your sausage in a little olive oil. Remove it. Add your garlic and saute. Then add your cans of chicken broth and continue. I add my sausage back at the last minute. I also use a bag of baby spinach. I never add the bacon. I don't think it needs it. My kids prefer it. It's easy as well.
