Gluten-Free Olive Garden Soup and Salad night

My favorite soup from the Olive Garden is Zuppa Toscana. Since we are doing my home version of Olive Garden, Here is a recipe that tastes like theirs.

1 lb Italian sausage (chicken sausage is a good sub for those of us that don't eat red meat)
2 large russet baking potatoes, sliced in half,and then in half again and then in 1/4 inch slices
1 large onion, chopped
1/2 can bacos, or 1/2 cup bacon (again depending on your diet choice)
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups kale chopped
4 cups  chicken broth
4 cups water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
dash of crushed red chiles

Directions:

Remove sausage casing and ground up meat with a spatula in a skillet over medium high heat.
Cook until cooked through, Drain sausage.
Place onions, potatoes, chicken broth, water, garlic in pot and cover, and cook on medium heat until potatoes are done.

Add sausage and bacon and a dash of red chiles.
Salt and pepper to taste.
Simmer for another 10 minutes.
Turn to low heat.
Add kale and cream.

Heat through and serve... Soup Salad and Breadsticks, Just like at Olive Garden! =)
