Really good. I used regular store-brand mild Italian sausage, skipped the chicken, and diced my own potatoes. I also used regular chicken broth. I mashed up some of the potatoes to make the soup a little thicker. Read More

Had a package of Italian sausage and was looking for something different to do with it. This soup was the perfect solution. Everyone really enjoyed the soup. Instead of pre diced potatoes I used fresh; peeled & diced them myself. I did not have fresh parsley so I used dried. Worked just as well. Added lots of garlic, as we all love garlic. I did not have any kale so I subbed fresh spinach. I put the spinach in as I was turning the burner down to warm and the spinach wilted and was a perfect addition to the soup. A very good, filling soup. Read More

Followed as close as I could without buying tons of prepackaged food. I left out the chicken, it doesn't really need it. I bought Mild Italian Pork sausage and took the casings off. I peeled and diced 3 white potatoes. Super easy and delious. The kids even ate it and didn't complain about the heat from the red pepper flakes. Read More

I've been making this soup for 5 years! My husband and I LOVE, love, LOVE it! I always double the recipe to share with family and friends. It's a hit...known as "THAT SOUP"! The ONLY changes I make is NOT adding oil in the pot when cooking the sausage...it really doesn't need it! And, I also use fresh chicken breast, which cuts down the sodium. My husband raves about this soup (man of few words)to his co-workers and wants me to prepare a big pot for them this winter! If you haven't tried it...you've got to! Read More

Sensational!! This soup is just fantastic. I know people get annoyed when we highly rate recipes and then mention all the changes we make, but I thought two meats in the soup was a little much so I actually replaced the chicken with cannellini beans. That's all. Delicious! A great way to eat kale if the idea of it scares you. Read More

I used mild Italian sausage, didn't add pepper, salt or chicken and we all loved it! My hard-to-please husband and 2 year old included (though he wouldn't eat the kale). Read More

Very good and easy! Added no chicken. Used spinach, not kale, fresh Italian parsley. Added cooked rice to thicken it a little. Read More

This was very tasty. The zuppa toscana soup at Olive Garden is my all time favorite so I was more than excited to try this one out. I took the advice of another recipe and added bacon and garlic. I also diced up 3 large potatoes instead of using frozen. I never really favored the kale so I used fresh spinach instead. Turned out great! Definitely one of my favorites! UPDATE: I do prefer the kale over the spinach I just use a little less kale than called for. Still so delicious! Also be very particular about what sausage you use because it makes all the difference in the flavor. I learned that the hard way. The first two times I loved the soup. when I made it again I used an off-brand that was on sale, I really did not like the outcome of the soup. Then I made it again with the same sausages I used the first two times and it was delicious Read More
