Share List This sausage & potato soup with kale recipe that started as a copycat recipe of Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana.

I’ll probably >> Get the Recipe!

The best part is the 1/2 lb of hamburger – that means 2 meals from 1lb of hamburger. You could use the other half for spaghetti or some other casserole on night 2 or >> Get the Recipe!
Share List I’m a big fan of soups in the winter. Soups that I can make in the crockpot are even better. This is a pretty flexible recipe, use what you have. I used frozen green chiles, but you could absolutely use canned. This is a really good way to use up leftover rotisserie chicken as well – just shred it up and put it into the soup in rough >> Get the Recipe!
