Add chicken bouillon and water to the pot and heat until it starts to boil.
Add the sliced potatoes and cook until soft, about half an hour.
Add the heavy cream and just cook until thoroughly heated.
Stir in the sausage and the basil let all heat through and serve.

I have a Toscana recipe that's divine but slightly different than yours. I can't wait to try this one.
