There is an Olive Garden right next to my office and I love to get this soup and some breadsticks to go for lunch! Now I can make it on the weekends when it is cold outside! This soup is easy to make satisfying and delicious. :You could leave out the bacon and chicken broth for non meat-eaters.
I pared this recipe down from another one on here to suit a faster preparation. This is still wonderful!!! And of course, even better the next day! Any small shape pasta will work - I like the small shells.
This is my favorite recipe for potato soup. It's a copycat of the one they use to serve at the St. Louis Bread Company (Panera). The recipe originally called for shredding your potatoes, but I never could get them to cook that way. I know they should cook faster, but I never could get it to work.
This is a WONDERFUL recipe that I have looked for over 7 years now! I finally got the recipe from Chef Betsy502, who has someone in her family that worked at Bob Evans, and then Impera Magna re-calculated all of the ingredients to make it a home-cooked meal for my family! YAY for the Chefs here on Zaar! This is so good! Such comfort food, I simply can't explain! ENJOY! (And thank you SO MUCH, Betsy502 and Impera Magna for helping me achieve my DREAM RECIPE!) :)
I found this recipe about five years ago on topsecretrecipes.com, but had forgotten about it until I tried mariposa13's recipe #123291. With one can of fat free sweetened condensed milk, you could make both recipes and have lots of healthy treats! You'll never miss the fat!
I love this salad!! So good, and just perfect in the summer. Definitely a full meal. This makes one lunch-size version of the cobb salad at Bob Evans. The onion used to be in the cobb salad, but then they took it out. I think it's really good in the salad though. The restaurant version has 13 ww points for this size. Prep time assumes chicken and egg are cooked.
This is an updated version of the "Olive Garden" Alfredo Pasta recipe. This recipe includes more grated Parmesan cheese and fresh garlic instead of garlic powder. You'll find this sauce thickens easier and has an improved Olive Garden taste. Just be sure not to crank the heat up too high when simmering the sauce or it could break, resulted in a not-so-creamy, curdled Alfredo.
