I haven’t had it in a while since I haven’t visited Olive Garden so I decided to try to make it myself.  I’m sure that the original recipe wasn’t made in a crockpot but it’s just the easiest way for me to make soup. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

So, Zuppa Toscana is Italian for Tuscan soup. It’s a traditional Italian soup that has Italian sausage, red peppers, diced white onion, bacon, bouillon, heavy cream, and kale. Like the name suggests, it originated in the Tuscany region of Italy. It’s a rich, hearty soup that makes a meal on its own. Of course, you can also serve it with a thick slice of Italian bread and butter.

This soup is definitely delicious, and I will be making it again. It was great for dinner and warmed up the next day for lunch. I’m not normally a fan of kale but in this recipe, you cannot really taste it. To keep it authentic, I recommend that you keep it in the recipe. But, if you really hate kale, you can leave it out or maybe try to substitute spinach instead.

It’s always so much fun to make copycat recipes. I have made the IHOP Bacon Temptation Omelette and that was a huge hit. But, I haven’t tried any other copycat restaurant recipes. Have you? If so, let me know which ones you’ve tried. I’d love to experiment a little bit more with copycat recipes. It’s certainly much less expensive to make them at home.

  1. I've never tried this soup but I want to now! Its sad to say but I've never tried kale so maybe this would be a good recipe to try it out.
  2. This turned out great! My whole family loved it even the kids! Only advise is to add 2 cups of water or broth to bring down the richness. Thank you so much for posting this!
  3. I eat this soup everytime i go to olive garden and its never been white.im guessing the whipping cream is the difference however olive garden does not make it like this
  4. How many does this recipe feed?

      In my home 3 people but it really depends on if you are having it as a main dish or as a side with a salad or sandwich.
