Warm-Your-Soul Tuscan Soup

Prep Time: 15 minutes   |   Cook time: 15 minutes   |   Yield: 4 servings


  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage
  • 32 oounces chicken broth
  • 12 ounces evaporated or condensed milk (Do NOT use sweetened condensed milk.)
  • 6-8 red potatoes, diced
  • 1/2 large onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning (or a blend of dried basil, oregano, rosemary, thyme, marjoram, sage)
  • Salt or garlic salt to taste
  • Pepper to taste
  • optional: spinach or kale, chopped



  1. Cook the sausage in the same large stew pot you’ll use to cook the soup, drain excess fat and return sausage to pot.
  2. Add the chicken broth and evaporated milk and bring to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat so soup simmers. Add potatoes, onions, seasoning, salt and pepper.
  4. The soup is done when the potatoes are cooked through, about 20-30 minutes. If using spinach or kale, add during the last few minutes of cooking.
