I love this soup!!! But next I am going to add more cream and put the kale in half way through so it wont be as soft.

I make this soup all the time now for my husband. It's excellent. Everytime we go to Olive Garden my husband always brags and says how much better my soup is than theirs! I agree with one other person and only simmer the soup for 45 minutes. I also add a little more cream than is called for, mild italian sausage and I don't add any extra salt. Yummo!!! Thanks Todd!

I was so happy to find this recipe - it's one of my husband's favs. He LOVES it. Had 3 bowls the first time I made it. :-)

My family loves this soup! I have a bunch of picky eaters, and they always complain about leafy things - but not this time! The flavor is right-on with OG's - Great work!

This soup is AWESOME! Myhusband (NOT a soup fan) loves it! I use mild sausage and add a little more kale, and it tastes exactly like Olive Gardens! Im actually making it right now!! Mmmmmm...

We love this recipe as much as the original version at Olive Garden.

We love the original version but haven't had it since my vegetarian daughter returned home. I transformed this into a vegetarian version by substituting non-meat Italian sausage crumbles and vegetable broth. It turned out great.

This is fabulous and better than OG because it's freshly-made. I use squeezed-out frozen spinach instead of kale just because its easy. I use bulk sausage to crumble and brown. Have served to guests and family and always get raves.

This is the best! My husband LOVES this soup, and is not a huge soup fan. The kale can be hard to find-ask the seafood dept. if you're not seeing it (they like to use it to decorate their displays).
