Ingredients for Zuppa Toscana
-Ground mild Italian sausage- feel free to buy the spicy kind if you can tolerate.
-Red potatoes- yellow potatoes works just as well if you have those on hand.
-Low-sodium chicken broth- broth is high in sodium and buying a lower sodium version is a slightly healthier choice.
-Kale- kale is wonderful in a soup because it doesn’t get soggy like spinach does and keeps some of its texture.
-Milk- use whatever kind of milk you can like. 2% milk works great or you can sub for lactose-free milk.
-Heavy whipping cream- typical zuppa toscana recipes call for a lot more heavy cream but I wanted to try it with milk and it worked out just as delicious so I did a combination of the two.
