Y’all it’s soup season! Of course the weather has been in the seventies here in Oklahoma but that has not kept me from making pots and pots of soup and ordering cozy sweaters!
This soup is unbelievably easy to make! Seriously, anyone could make this. It comes from The Simple Kitchen Cookbook by Donna and Chad Elick of The Slow Roasted Italian. If you are new to their site, you are going to be blown away by the deliciousness!

Last year we baked a bunch of Donna’s Famous Sugar Cookies from The Slow Roasted Italian and made their Best-Tasting Sugar Cookie Icing, which is seriously the best.
I was so glad that these recipes are included in the cookbook. We will be making them again this year. Baking goodies for the holidays is my favorite and Emmet loves decorating cookies and we all love eating them!

Lately, I have become a total soup fanatic. There’s just something so comforting about a big warm bowl of soup. It is filling and delicious. Just add a side of my White Cheddar Potato Rolls or Skillet Cornbread and I am one happy camper.
I remember my mom making huge pots of potato soup when I was growing up, it was always so dang good. I’ve made Slow Cooker Cheesy Smoked Sausage Idaho Potato Soup and Creamy Ham and Potato Soup but this Tuscan Sausage Potato Soup might be my new favorite. You just can’t beat this kind of comfort food.
I think I had this on the table in about 30 minutes. The potatoes are cut into small cubes and when they become tender, you remove about a cup and mash them. When you add them back in, it thickens the soup.
I’m pretty much a sissy when it comes to spicy foods so I used mild sausage and the red pepper flakes added plenty of kick for me. If you are into the spicy, by all means pick up the spicy Italian sausage. Spicy or mild, I know you are going to love it!
- 1 pound Italian Hot Sausage, casing removed (I used mild)
- 6 cups reduced sodium chicken stock
- 6 medium russet potatoes (2 pounds), cut into ½ inch cubes
- ½ teaspoon kosher salt, more to taste
- ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes, more to taste
- 4 cups chopped kale
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Warm a Dutch oven or 6-quart pot over medium-high heat. Once you can feel the heat when you hold your hand 6 inches above the pot, crumble in the Italian sausage. Cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up the sausage as desired, until the sausage is browned and cooked through, 5-7 minutes. Drain the sausage drippings from the pan.
- Return the pot to the heat and add the chicken stock, potatoes, salt and red pepper flakes. Boil until the potatoes are for-tender, about 15 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove 1 cup of potatoes from the pot and place them in a bowl. Mash the potatoes and pour them back into the pot; this will help thicken the soup. Add the kale and cream to the soup, and stir to combine. Continue cooking the soup until the kale is wilted and tender, about 3 more minutes. Taste for seasoning and add salt to taste and red pepper flakes.
