WOW!!! This stuff was so addicting! The broth was out of this world. The potatoes, sausage, and kale are a wonderful flavor and texture combination! I ended up using the real bacon pieces used for salads, and it was perfect and made it so simple. I've tried other versions of this recipe, but the quality ingredients with this one turned out with the best flavor. This one is definitely a keeper.

We crave this soup! It IS better than Olive Garden's. We double the recipe and enjoy it for two to three days. We've even eaten it for breakfast. Thanks, Mr. Comer.

This was amazingly good. My family loved it! Followed the recipe exactly and now I can save money by making the soup, instead of spending my money at olive garden to get my soup fix!

Omg, this recipe is exactly the same as Olive Garden restaurant. I never thought it would taste the same. I first made it for Christmas Eve dinner and it was amazing. Thank you so much for the recipe.<br/>Yelisa Morales,Florida

I absolutely LOVE this soup! Whenever I'd go to Olive Garden, I'd get two or three servings and then take my entree home with me because I'd fill up on the soup (and bread, of course.) I made a few changes for myself, using 2 pounds of sausage, 1 pound mild italian and 1 pound hot italian. It adds an extra kick that I love. It also tastes great without the cream if you're looking for a non-dairy version. Will be making this OVER AND OVER again!

Soup is delicious. However, you may want to cut way down on the ground pepper flakes.

I tried this soup a few weeks ago at the Olive Garden. Went back twice and ordered some to go. Then I found this recipe online. This is absolutely the perfect recipe! I'm adding a little more kale and bacon next time - that's to suit my personal taste. Thanks for the recipe!

Just delicious! <br/><br/>My kids ate it (I think the younger ones didn't love it... like almost everything). <br/><br/>My DH loved it! We will definitely make this again. Next time I make it, I'll brown the bacon separately... I not a big fan of un-crisp bacon even though it still may add flavor... I guess it's a texture thing. The broth is soooo delicious. Thanks for a great recipe!

I made this for a beading party and the ladies loved it. Never mentioned it was an Olive Garden copycat. It was simple to make and delicious.
