Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana at Home Anytime

I love the soups at Olive Garden.  They are always fresh, hot, and delicious!  I don’t always have the time or money to go out to dinner though, so I have found ways to bring these amazing soups home by making them fresh in my kitchen.  Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana is one such soup that is easy to make at home with everyday ingredients.  And, it’s a pretty fast soup too, ready in just about an hour, making it great as a weeknight meal or as a starter for a weekend feast.  What could be better?

What Makes Zuppa Toscana So Tasty

Starting with Italian sausage and bacon, and finishing with the bity Swiss chard, everything melds to make a beautiful soup.  To thicken the broth slightly, add heavy cream just before serving.  It will create a wonderfully creamy Zuppa Toscana that has a rich flavor.

  1. Margarita says

    Have u made this? Does it taste just like Olive Gardens or is it similar?

  2. I’ve made it before but instead of using swiss chard, I use kale. It tastes just like Olive Garden if not better!
