Zuppa Toscana

1 (16 ounce) package smoked sausage

2 cups kale - washed, dried, and shredded

 2 potatoes, cut into 1/4-inch slices

2 tablespoons chicken soup base

 3/4 cup chopped onion

1 quart water

 6 slices bacon

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream

 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic


Preheat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C). Place sausage links onto a sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until done. Cut links in half lengthwise, then cut at an angle into 1/2-inch slices. Place onions and bacon slices in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat until onions are almost clear. Remove bacon and crumble. Set aside. Add garlic to the onions and cook an additional 1 minute. Add chicken soup base, water, and potatoes, simmer 15 minutes. Add crumbled bacon, sausage, kale, and cream. Simmer 4 minutes and serve.
