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.

If I could give this recipe more stars I would !! It tasted BETTER than Olive Garden's. This is my new favorite website, keep up the good work!! Thanks !!
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).
WOW!! This is BETTER than O.G's version, I am hooked!! Thank you

I have a very bad addiction to this soup and I have been trying different recipes this month. So far this has been the closest. My only complaint is that it is too spicy. I think I will use mild or sweet sausage next time. I also added more chicken broth until it looked right, and I only used about 1 cup of Kale. It's also good to toss in some grated romano or parmesean and fresh grated Romano on top, just like at the restaurant.
