Please consider this Zuppa Toscana Recipe to be the frame for your own Tuscan soup since you may create your own version by adding fried bacon, kale instead of baby spinach and chicken broth instead of water with bouillon cube.
When serving, you can grate any hard or semi hard cheese since the soup is still hot and any cheese fits perfectly, anyway.
Italian sausage is so full of amazing flavours so, for us, any extra spices are not necessary but if depends on your own preferences.

Some of my friends add potatoes but I am trying to skip them since my grandmother never made any stew or soup with potatoes if it included warming it up the next day.

She convinced us all that it is not wise thing to do : to warm the potatoes next day.
Even now, having family of my own, I do not know if it is really that dangerous but I am not eager to experiment, to be honest.
Knowing I bring leftovers to the office, the chances to warm this one are real.
This quantity is enough to feed four adults, especially if you slice warm ciabatta aside or serve with dinner rolls.
