Toscana Soup

Reviewed: Dec. 13, 2010
I give this recipe 5 stars, only with a few alterations. First, I used more chicken broth than water. I only used two cups of water and I didn't measure the broth, but I'm sure it was more than four cups. Once I had the broth/water mix boiling with the onions, garlic, and potatoes, it was very bland, so I seasoned it with seasoning salt and pepper. I boiled the potatoes in the broth for about 35 minutes (15 minutes was not long enough to make the potatoes soft). I used 1/2 more heavy cream than the recipe called for. I also used Mexican Chorizo sausage instead of spicy pork, and spinach instead of kale. My family was very pleased with the outcome. It is now a favorite soup, and the first I've ever made.
