Wednesday’s Helping: Alternate Ingredients for Zuppa Toscana

Slimmer servings will do 

We have a number of recommendations for lightening up our zuppa toscana recipe. Substitute the heavy cream with an equal portion evaporated milk or “fat-free” evaporated milk. Half-n-half is also a better option for anyone on a diet. Meanwhile, look for spicy Italian sausage that’s made with chicken or turkey instead of fat-laden pork. Remember too that turkey bacon is just as flavorful as regular pork bacon. Are you on a carb-restricting regiment? We suggest substituting one of the potatoes with diced rutabagas or turnips.
