Overdueleaf

made zuppa tusona for the first time and it was amazing. I cooked this in my dutch oven. 

1 lb italian sausage

8 oz bacon

1 large onion chopped

3 cloves of fresh garlic (or to taste)

1/4 cup flour

fennel, salt, pepper to taste

6 cups of chicken stock

4 med-large russet potatoes (sliced thin and quartered)

half a bunch of kale

cup of half and half

Brown italian sausage remove from pan and drain on paper towels. In sausage drippings cook bacon, about half way through add onion, garlic and some fennel until fragrant. When bacon and onions are cooked add in flour and mix well. Add chicken stock mix well simmer for 10 minutes. Add potatoes let simmer 10 minutes then add kale (if not enough add more to your liking). Simmer for 5 -10 minutes (check potatoes frequently until tender) Once potaotes are done add half and half. mix well. Salt and pepper to taste. (i found I needed very little) I added more fennel at the end but do this to your liking as not everyone likes a strong fennel flavor. 

It goes great with a crusty dipping bread
