      Great recipe! It was a major hit with the family! It really does taste just like Olive Garden's soup! I love how easy it was to make too! Will definitely be making this over and over again! I also didn't use heavy cream since it's so expensive. I did the substitute of 3/4 cup milk 1/3 cup butter. It turned out great! Thanks for sharing!

      We were at Olive Garden a few days ago. My husband and I both had seconds on the Zuppa Toscana! I got home and searched for the recipe, finding a few on Pinterest! Yesterday I made it!<br/>I noticed the inclusion of red pepper flakes which surprised me because neither my husband or I like "hot" food. I decided to cut the amount in half because you can always add more. But nearly ruined the entire batch. It was so much too spicy for both of us, I had to add two cups more of the cream, which naturally diluted it some. Next time I'll just add a pinch of the flakes, to accomplish the same mildness we enjoyed at OG.
