At first it looked hard to make but it really wasn't. Some expensive ingrediets so just tasting okay doesn't cut it. Probably won't make again.
Tuscan-Style Potato Soup

This is very good, but it had a bit too much garlic for my taste. Next time I would use bottled pesto and cut back on the garlic.

There's a lot of work involved so leave it for the weekend. The first night I made it, I thought it was average and wouldn't make it again. But I saved the leftovers; and the second day, it was great.

I didn't bother with the pancetta, kale or the sage. I made the soup base according to the recipe, but I did add 1/2 tsp each of thyme and oregano when I added the half-and-half. I cooked about 3/4 lb of spicy ground turkey sausage with the onion, and in another pan I toasted about a half-cup pine nuts, but left them whole. I served up each bowl of soup with a spoonful of sausage on top and garnished it with grated parmesan, pine nuts, and minced fresh herbs (basil, parsley, and chives from my garden). I had some crusty sourdough bread on the side. It was absolutely delicious, and I will definitely be making it (my modified version) again.

I made this last night and followed the recipe exactly. It was delicious, the best potato soup i've ever had and now one of my favorite soup recipes. It's very easy to make and to cut down on time, make the kale garnish and the sausage portions while the potatoes are cooking.

Wonderfully special potato soup. All of the toppings are good, but the potato soup is wonderful on its own. Will make again.

I made this for Thanksgiving and it was the star of the show! It was gone within minutes and the whole family was raving about the flavor. The toppings are fun/delicious, but you definitely don't need them. I added a little bit more chicken stock because it was very thick. The only complaint is that the recipe has a daunting amount of steps, but it was fairly easy overall. I am making it again this weekend.

I have been trying to cook with more kale. I came across this recipe and thought potato soup... blah, but after reading the recipe, I thought I would give it a try. I loved it! The roasted garlic, the sage, the kale pesto! A delicious combination of flavors. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you!
