I made some Tuscan Zuppa Toscana and I have to say it is easy to make and very good.
Zuppa Toscana means Tuscan Soup and this is an Italian soup that is is full of flavors.
This soup is a creamy tomato consistency.
Tuscan Zuppa Toscana
2 tbsp butter
1 small onion chopped
2 cloves garlic or 2 tablespoons of minced garlic
4 cups chicken broth
8 oz cream cheese
1 lb Italian sausage (mild or hot)
2- 14 oz can diced tomatoes I left one chunky and mixed one in the bullet for 2-3 seconds.
1 zucchini medium-sized chopped small
4 cups chopped spinach
2 tsp dried basil
2 tsp dried oregano
3 bay leafs
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste)
Melt the butter over medium-high heat and add the onion, garlic, and Italian sausage to cook for 4-5 minutes or until onion is soft and meat browned.
Pour in three cups of the chicken broth then add the zucchini, basil, oregano, bay leaf, cayenne pepper (if using), and diced tomatoes.
Bring to a boil then lower the heat to simmer.
Place the remaining cup of bone broth and cream cheese in a blender and blend until smooth. I used my bullet for this. Pour into the rest of the soup and stir.
Mix in the chopped spinach and once wilted serve the soup or allow to simmer for another half hour or more for the flavors to combine.
Serve topped with shredded parmesan cheese.
Sounds really good.
