Recipe of the Day - (Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana) : LUSENET : Cooking & Crafts : One Thread

Beginning today we will also have the "Recipe of the Day". So here is todays:


1 1/2 C. spicy sausage links -- 12
2 potatoes, cut into 1/4" slices then cut in half
3/4 C. onions, diced
6 slices bacon
1 1/2 tsp. minced garlic
2 C. kale leaves, but in half, then sliced
2 T. chicken base
1 qt. water
1/3 C. heavy whipping cream

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place sausage links onto a sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until done; cut in half length-wise, then cut at an angle into 1/2 inch slices.

Place onions and bacon in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat until onions are almost clear. Remove bacon and crumble. Add garlic to the onions and cook an additional 1-minute. Add chicken base, water, and potatoes, simmer 15 minutes. Add crumbled bacon, sausage, kale and cream. Simmer 4 minutes and serve.

Could anyone post the Olive Garden Minestrone Soup and the breed stick recipie? We had it last time we were over in the States and thought it was fantastic. My Husband loves the Zuppa Toscana.

Many thanks
