this 5 star rating is from my son who was craving this soup the day before I made it...he wanted to go to Olive Garden so bad but I had to talk him into waiting for me to make this...I have never had it before but Jason said this recipe was exact...perfect...wouldn't change a thing...it is very good...I will double the recipe and make it for Easter dinner...thanks, Carmen
I made half a recipe for the two of us and it was perfect. I used Bob Evans hot sausage and kale (from bountiful baskets) What a great soup!
This is a wonderful recipe. I prepare soup and baked goods each week for a local Farmers' Market, and this is very popular. I do think it is made a little better by adding a handful of chopped fresh basil just before you add the liquid, however. Delicious.
Absolutely delicious !! I dont live near an Olive Garden and this is my favorite soup from there. It really brought the taste home and I cant wait to make it again !
Tip: I use spinach instead of kale. Just get the premixed spinach salad, stick it in the freezer, crunch it up when frozen, and measure out 2 cups...really handy cuz you don't have to do any cutting.
awesome recipe!!! the only thing i changed was the water and chicken broth quantity...i swapped them. Now i need the recipe for their breadsticks and salad dressing..:)
Not that another 5 star rating is needed, but this was wonderful. Quick and easy, simple and inexpensive. Loved it!
I absolutely love OG's Zuppa Toscana. I had no idea how easy this would be to make. Thanks for this recipe. By using some of the other recommendations I sauteed the onions in the bacon/sausage grease. I also boiled the onion, garlic, potatoes, broth in order to cook the potatoes. I then removed most of the potatoes and poured remaineder into a food processor. I have kids who wont eat onions if they see them. By doing this it thickened the soup.
As a prievious waitress of the OG I tried this recipe and it was right on! Pretty simple too! DELICIOUS! Next time I may use ground sausage but the flavor was right on!
Simple and great tasting!
