I have like 3 various but similar ones for the Zuppa Toscano. so here is a quick version.
Sausage ( use your favorite)
baking potatos (Must be baking potatos as other will go to mush
bacon bits (Can make your own from bacon,out of a jar or the real bits in a small bag)
garlic ( fresh or from jar)
whipping cream( can use milk,fat free whipping cream half and half)
I didn't put amounts so you can use more or less depending on your likes
Cut sausage into small pieces and either cook in your pot or cook in oven.
You can put sausage in later or leave it in pot. I leave mine in pot.Slice your potatoes and onions and garlic and put in pot.
Cover with chicken broth. At least an inch over
Once taters are almost done add kale and bacon bits. ( And sausage if you left it out )
Simmer for maybe 5 minutes. ( If you don't have milk the soup is good just like this.
Take pot off stove top and slowly add your cream slowly. Add salt now if needed.
If you need to reheat later do it on low so you don't curdle milk
I have the hard copy of the soups and I will mail them to anyone that wants. Just private message me and let me know.leave your address if I don't already have it.
Shepherds pie is just cooked ground meat with veggies in it and topped with mashed potatoes. Can add cheese to meat or on top of potatos with some bread crumbs. It probably was originally made with lamb. I am sure spark recipes has some recipes for this
