Olive Garden's Toscana Soup

Tonight was soup and salad night and I had a recipe from Olive Garden for their Toscana Soup that I hadn't tried before, so I decided to give it a try. It was really tasty! Here it is:

6-8 sausage links, cut
1-2 slices bacon, cut
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 onion, diced
1 chicken bouillon
1 quart water
3/4 cup whipping cream
2-3 med. potatoes, cubed
1 bunch kale or cavallo greens, cut

Cook sausage in skillet, then exchange for bacon and onion. Strain off all but 1 tsp. drippings. In pot, put all ingredients except whipping cream and kale. Bring to boil, simmer 15 min. Add cream and kale and simmer 5 more minutes. Serve and season with salt and pepper to taste.
