Mix n Chop - We use the mix n chop to break up the sausage and love it.
Saucepan - to cook the sausage
Crockpot - We suggest using a crockpot that has a digital timer that automatically switches the slow cooker to warm after a set amount of time. This helps make sure your dinner cooks perfectly and you don't have to stress about what time it is going to be done.
You will want to plan for a cook time of 7-8 hours if you are cooking this on low. This Zuppa Toscana recipe is perfect for setting up in the morning and having it ready when you want it for dinner.
The soup needs to cook long enough so the potatoes are fork-tender. We love how super easy this Zuppa Toscana Soup is to make in the slow cooker. John loves this soup and would happily eat it for days.
How can you go wrong with a potato soup filled with chopped kale, onion and garlic, Italian sausages and more?
