Make this Copycat Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana Soup at home next time you feel like going out. | Tried and TastyI love the Olive Garden, but I hardly ever go. In fact, I’ve never been there with Steve at all. Weird. None the less, my fave thing to get is this soup. Unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks baby. I’d never really thought about making it myself until I ran across this recipe and saw just how easy it was. In addition, we’d been buying kale recently to juice, so I had all the ingredients. I took leftovers to my family during the holidays and they loved it! So yummy, so easy, so much cheaper!Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana // A delicious copycat of one of my very favorite soups!

    This worked out so well. I used hash browns instead of regular potatoes. I also took the casings off the sausage and browned the meat. Worked great.

  2. Pat Cody

    My husband LOVES this soup. It’s a regular during the fall and winter months. Of course my husband loves anything that includes potatoes but this is definitely a favorite!

  3. Jan Little

    This is my absolute favorite soup. I’ve made this from another recipe and everyone loved it, next time I’m going to try this one, so much easier. Try adding the pepper flakes when cooking onions to bring out flavor and add just the right amount if heat. Especially yummy on a crisp autumn day

  4. Shayla

    Yum. Yum. I think maybe it would just be easier to hire you to cook this and all your yummy food for my family and then I wont burn, over cook, or under cook anything! Deal?

    I got some Kale this weekend and the first thing I thought was this soup. The recipe sounds wonderful. I am making it today :>)

  6. Stephanie Rodarte

    I also LOVE this soup! I discovered a similar recipe months ago and it has since become a regular on our family meal menu. I’ve always used ground sausage rather than link sausage. I’ll have to try your variation the next time around. Thanks for always posting such yummy recipe’s. It makes meal planning a little easier and a little more fun!
