    Just made this for dinner. Should be ready in about 30 minutes. Will post results ASAP.

    Crock Pot Zuppa Toscana
    Ingredients

    1 lb. sausage
    2 large russet baking potatoes , sliced in half, and then in 1/4 inch slices
    1 large onion , chopped
    1/4 c. bacon bits (optional)
    2 garlic cloves , minced
    2 c. kale or swiss chard , chopped
    16 oz. can chicken broth
    1 quart water
    1 c. heavy whipping cream

    Directions

    Brown the sausage in a skillet over medium-high heat until no longer pink.
    Place cooked sausage, chicken broth, water, garlic, potatoes and onion in the slow cooker.
    Cover & Crock on High for 3-4 hours until potatoes are cooked and soft.
    Optional: Mash the potatoes a bit with a potato masher for texture.
    Turn the slow cooker off and add the kale.
    Return the lid and let sit for 5 minutes.
    Stir in whipping cream and serve.



    It's supposed to be the copy cat recipe from Olive Garden, my favorite.

    Delicious. Turned out perfect. No need to visit the Olive Garden again.

    That looks good enough that you should add the recipe!
    I'd try it, crock pots have been my friend lately.

    I never know if I should change the text color or not. When I preview the post it shows black text on black background, so you can't really see it on the computer. But when I use TapaTalk on my phone I can't read it with white text. Sorry.

    Thanks, I have enough senior moments as it is! I should have known to highlight it.

    I edited the text color. I see now it's the preview that has black text on black background, once you post it, it's white text on black background.

    the brownie recipe is the same.
    It's not how old you are, it's how you got here.
    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.
