For two years after the first Olive Garden restaurant opened in 1982, operators were still tweaking the restaurant's physical appearance and the food that was served. Even the tomato sauce was changed as many as 25 times. It's that sort of dedication that creates fabulous dishes like this popular Zuppa Toscana soup. This copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup recipe blends the flavors of potatoes, kale, and Italian sausage in a slightly spicy chicken and cream broth.

Finally a recipe that does not contain bacon! I scoured the Internet before coming here and they ALL called for bacon and I knew that wasn’t it. I used to work at Olive Garden back in the day and this is pretty dang close. I remember they put the kale in at the VERY end and it managed to wilt nicely- but I had to simmer the kale for an hour to soften it. Something about restaurant kale and grocery store kale is just not the same. I doubled the recipe, cooked the sausage with half an onion and topped with pecorino Romano at the end. My fiancé and I enjoyed it very much.

I've never had the OG version but omg this was fantastic. I doubled the recipe as it just sounded so good and am I ever glad I did. I mashed up the potatoes a bit after they were cooked to thicken the soup. I will definitely make this again! The recipe is super easy as well.
