DIRECTIONS

  • In a large stockpot, put water, bouillon, salt, red pepper flakes, garlic, and potatoes. Cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally.
  • Sauté the sausage and onion in a skillet, until the sausage is brown, then add it to the stockpot, along with the Kale. Simmer for 20 - 30 minutes, or until Kale and potatoes are tender.
  • Add the cream and bacon bits, and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Notes:
  • I use 10 medium size potatoes.
  • Half and Half can be substituted for the heavy cream if desired.
  • Kale can be found in the produce department of most grocery stores.
  • The soup at The Olive Garden is not thick. If you wish yours to be more like a cream soup, simply simmer it longer, and mash some of the potatoes in the pot with a wooden spoon, and stir frequently until of the desired consistency.
