Yes, we are still in the heat here Arizona, but even so the soup season has begun in our house. Almost every other day it seems we are having a soup for dinner. One of my weaknesses is Zuppa Toscana. I could easily eat this for breakfast. When we were living on our property in Florida we often had goats milk Zuppa Toscana. I couldn’t taste the difference with the goats milk, but all I know, that it was wonderful.
This recipe doesn’t call for Crushed Red Peppers, but instead Adobo Sauce, which gives it a nice smoky flavor. I love comfort food but also getting some amazing green in my meal is a plus for me. Kale is such a great touch to this soup and makes it that perfect bite to the potato, sausage and bacon.
A great dessert to match this dinner, we tried a Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake last night. Just make sure you don’t get in a hurry to eat this cake while making the frosting. I didn’t let the sugar and butter come to a boil, I was too impatient so the sugar never dissolved enough to melt down. Now we are eating amazingly rich and decant but crunchy Chocolate Texas Sheet Cake every time we take a bite ha!
