This is supposedly the closest receipe to the real deal. I am going to try it, I'll let you know how it goes... p.s. this soup is the reason I love the Olive Garden!
Ingredients: 12 small spicy sausage links 2 medium potatoes, cut in half lengthwise, and then cut into 1/4" slices 3/4 cup onions, diced 6 slices bacon 1 1/2 teaspoon minced garlic 2 cups kale leaves, cut in half, then sliced 2 tablespoons chicken base 1 qt. water 1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
Directions: Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Place sausage links onto a sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes, or until done; cut in half length-wise, then cut at an angle into 1/2 inch slices. Place onions and bacon in a large saucepan and cook over medium heat until onions are almost clear. Remove bacon and crumble. Add garlic to the onions and cook an additional 1-minute. Add chicken base, water, and potatoes, simmer 15 minutes. Add crumbled bacon, sausage, kale and cream. Simmer 4 minutes and serve.
