Zuppa Toscana



It's a cold, cloudy day . . . the fireplace is flickering, and you're happy to be lounging around the house in sweats and socks with no where to go. If only you had something warm and comforting for your tummy. This is it! :-) It's bacon, sausage, potatoes, cream and kale. What could possibly be better?!?!? Zuppa Toscana with a crusty baguette - it really DOESN'T get any better. I made some minor changes (like cooking the bacon before the onion so I could drain a little of the bacon grease off, and my hubby and I added some red pepper flakes in our bowls to keep from hearing "it's too spicy" from our oldest son). You could change out lots of things to make it healthier, but really . . . why mess with perfection. My oldest son even gave it a thumbs up!

In this soup, definitely. Sawyer ate it, so it's not overwhelmingly bitter or anything. Tell him it's good for him! :-)
