Zuppa Toscana Soup is a thick and rich soup made with bacon, sausage and potatoes. It's so authentic, you'll feel like you’re dining in old Tuscany!


  • 42 ounces Chicken Broth
  • 2 cups whipping cream
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • ½ package bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 cups spinach chopped
  • 1 lb mild Italian ground sausage
  • 3 potatoes scrubbed and cut into slices or small chunks


  • Cook and crumble the bacon, set aside.
  • Cook and crumble the italian sausage in a large pot.
  • Once the sausage is cooked through, add chicken broth, and spinach. Place a lid on the pot and let it come to a slight boil.
  • Slice potatoes in half and then cut 1/4 inch thick slices. In a skillet over medium heat, saute the potatoes, diced onion, and garlic until potatoes are cooked.
  • Once cooked, add cooked/crumbled bacon and the potato mixture to the pot of chicken broth and sausage.
  • Stir together, and add in whipping cream. (don't boil it once the whipping cream is in it because it could curdle)
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
