I made Toscana Soup, a hearty Italian soup--it was yummy (and somewhat spicy).
And some panninis...mmm...good! I love my pannini maker (Thanks Mom!)
You just can't beat a Monday afternoon lunch with a friend!
12 links spicy sausage (I used ground sausage)
1 T vegetable oil
3/4 cup diced onion
1 1/4 teaspoons minced garlic
2 T chicken broth
4 cups water (I substituted additional broth for this)
2 potatoes, halved and sliced
2 cups sliced kale
1/3 cup heavy cream
Cook sausage according to directions. If using links, cut into 1/2 inch slices when cooked.
Heat oil and saute onions until translucent, add garlic and cook 1 minute.
Stir in broth, water (or broth) and potatoes, simmer 15 minutes or until potatoes are done.
Reduce heat to low and add sausage, kale and cream. Simmer until heated through.
(I added more broth and cream so that it would be a more "soupy" as opposed to "stewy")
Have a good Tuesday--it's raining here so I think I will curl up and enjoy some leftover soup!
