Comments & Reviews

  1. This zuppa toscana looks SO COMFORTING! I have been craving a soup like this for a long time and I just got a bunch of fresh spinach from the farmers market! I think it’s meant to be!

  2. Tasted great, mom would make this but she never wrote down the recipe so this was a great guide for me to get close to hers. I used hot Italian sausages and added carrots to it. I hand-shredded the kale and put it in my bowl then  added the soup, I find putting it in the pot makes it mushy if there’s leftovers. Also made some macaroni for it since my brother isn’t a big fan of kale which tasted pretty good too.

  3. The recipe was really good. I used Johnsonville Italian sausage and better than bullion beef broth, thus omitted the salt. If it needed salt, always good to suggest to add it gently to the end to taste.

  4. I tweaked this recipe foe chicken and it came out delicious. I used rotisserie chicken (without the skin) and chicken broth instead of beef and WOW.

    Thank you for posting this!

  5. Zuppa toscana is my husband’s favorite! I need to make this for him soon!

  6. I think I’m the only person who hasnt had the real deal but no worries, I can just make yours now 🙂 pinned

  7. AAAAAAH THAT IS MY FAVORITE SOUP FROM OLIVE GARDEN!! I can make it at home now?!? Aimee I could kiss you! Except that would be weird to do through my computer (and in general) so instead THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

  8. I do believe you have nearly recreated the entire Olive Garden menu! That and Panera 🙂 I’m not complaining though! I could definitely make a meal of the apps – why do they think we need a meal? Their breadsticks are so.good.

  9. I’m a fan of the zuppa toscana for sure! Just had it on my blog several months ago. Always a favorite in our house. Your version looks terrific.
    Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

  10. Oh my sister and my mom love getting this! I’ll definitely have to try this one! Gorgeous photo!

  11. There’s nothing better than a bowl of soup for lunch. This soup looks amazing! It’s nice to be able to recreate the good food you taste at a restaurant.
