Recipe Ingredients for Tuscan Soup

1 lb. turkey sausage
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes
2 russett potatoes, peeled
2 cups fresh kale, chopped
3 cups chicken broth
2 1/2 cups water
1 cup evaporated skim milk

Recipe Directions for Tuscan Soup

Place a large stockpot or Dutch oven on the stove over medium heat. Crumble the sausage into the pan and cook until well browned. Remove the cooked sausage from the pot with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl; set aside. Add the chopped onion to the pan and sauté until tender, about 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and red pepper flakes to the pan and cook for a minute more, just until fragrant. Add the wine to the pot and stir, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Add the potatoes, kale, chicken broth and water to the pot. Return the sausage to the pot. Increase the heat to medium-high, bring to a boil, and then reduce to a simmer on medium-low. Cover and let simmer for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are fork-tender and cooked through. Stir in the heavy cream and season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately.
