Zuppa Toscana Soup

I LOVE a good restaurant copycat recipe, don’t you?

When my husband and I go out to eat at Olive Garden, Zuppa Toscana is one of my favorite things to order! (I could LIVE off the soup and salad at Olive Garden – can you relate?!) Since we have 5 little ones at home and going out to eat doesn’t happen as often as I would like it to, I decided to find another way to get my fix for this delicious soup. This copycat soup recipe is PERFECT! It tastes exactly like the soup from Olive Garden, but we get to enjoy it from the comfort of our own home. Added bonus: Our house smells amazing all day while it cooks in our slow cooker!
