Olive Garden's Zuppa Tuscana Soup COPYCAT!

1 lb ground turkey
4 tsp dalmation sage
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp dried marjoram
1 tsp red pepper flakes (if you want it hot)
1 pkg bacon (Nitrite/ Nitrate FREE), chopped up
8 C (2 full cartons) good chicken stock
5 red potatoes, scrubbed and cubed up
2 cloves garlic
1 onion, chopped
2-3 C chopped kale
1 C heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper to taste

In a dutch oven or soup pot cook ground turkey, drain grease-if any- season meat with the sage, salt, pepper, marjoram and red pepper flakes, then set aside.
Brown up the bacon pieces, remove and set aside, leaving a few TBLS of bacon grease in the skillet.
Saute chopped potatoes, onion, and garlic in rendered bacon fat until onions begin to be translucent and potatoes are beginning to soften!
Add meat, bacon, chicken stock and kale and boil until potatoes are tender. Add the cream, stir, season with salt and pepper to taste and serve!
