    I've always loved the zuppa toscana soup at the Olive Garden, this was similar but this was better. I used ground sausage which made it even easier, and it turned out wonderful. The whole family loved it even my 3 yr old. This is definetly one of my favorites!!  -  21 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed it a little, but only to make it easier. It tasted the same. I used 1 (32 oz) box of chicken broth, and I used 1 bag of little potatoes cut in half. My 6 kids, ages 7,11,16,18,21, and 23 ALL loved it and my husband told me it was the best soup he's had in his life. This is the same husband who loves my corn chowder, my split pea soup with ham, and my ham and cheddar cheese soup. My own soups are all good and usually get me compliments and requests for my recipes, but I must admit this soup is better than any of mine.  -  28 May 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I really enjoyed this soup. It takes almost like Olive Garden's zuppa toscana soup. I decided to use 3 cans of chicken broth and used about a cup of heavy cream. I also added more potatoes & it was great. I thought the soup had a really good flavor. Nothing lacking for me!!!  -  06 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
