Uncle Buddy’s Zuppa Tuscana


1 pound sweet Italian sausage, removed from the casings
5 slices bacon, diced
1/2 white onion, diced
3 cloves garlic, peeled
32 ounces beef broth
2 white potatoes, diced (no peeling necessary)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3 cups spinach, fresh
1 1/2 cups heavy cream
1 cup parmesan cheese, shredded and divided


Brown sausage and diced bacon in a French oven over medium-high heat until fully cooked.

Drain all but one tablespoon of oil.

Sauté onion and garlic in remaining oil for about 2-3 minutes.

Add back the sausage and bacon.

Add beef broth, potatoes, salt and pepper.

Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
1 Reduce to low and cover.

Simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until potatoes are fully cooked.

Add fresh spinach, cream and 3/4 cup parmesan cheese.

Heat over medium until warm (about 5 minutes).

Serve with a sprinkle of extra parmesan on top.


Note: Wyler’s has a new product out that is very good, and it can be found next to the bouillon cubes.

It is a powder that you mix 1 teaspoon powder with 1 cup hot water = 1 cup Beef Broth.

It works great, and it is very cheap to use because one jar makes a lot of cups of beef broth and it comes in either BEEF or CHICKEN!
