Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana

Happy Monday y'all! I hope you all had a great weekend. 

On Friday after school I picked up our groceries from Click-list, grabbed Chick-fil-A for dinner, and spent the rest of the night reading. Saturday we spent the day with family and my SIL and BIL helped Chase put all of our nursery furniture together. Everything is coming together so well, and I can't wait to get it finished and share the final update with y'all. Sunday Chase had to help a friend move so I had a lazy day at home. I did manage to put dinner in the crock-pot, meal prep for the week, and organize a few things in the baby's room.

Last night we had one of mine and Chase's favorite crock-pot dinners - Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana. I've been making it for years so I'm not sure why I'm just now sharing it, but as I was prepping everything yesterday I decided to snap a few pics and share with y'all. It is such an easy recipe and I think y'all will love it!

32 oz. Chicken Broth
Heavy Cream
Mild or Hot Sausage
Red Potatoes
1/2 White Onion
Red Pepper Flakes (Optional)
Salt & Pepper

Step 1: Cook sausage on stove top.
Step 2: Put chicken broth, cooked sausage, chopped potatoes, onion, kale, and salt & pepper in crock-pot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. We like ours to be extra spicy so I use hot sausage and add red pepper flakes in during this step. If you don't like spicy, I would suggest using mild sausage and skipping out on the red pepper flakes.
Step 3: After cooking on low for 6-8 hours, add in 1 cup of heavy cream, and stir. This just makes it a little thicker/more creamy.
Once you've mixed in the heavy cream it is ready to eat! Sometimes we top it with a little parmesan or mozzarella cheese too.

 Literally SO easy and SO good.

Hope y'all have a great Monday!
