3/22: Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup with GF Cheesy Breadsticks

This stuff is so delicious! I am not a huge fan of Olive Garden pasta but I love their soups, salad and breadsticks. My mom found this Zuppa Toscana recipe and it tastes just like you’re eating at the Olive Garden. I did make a few changes to the original recipe though. The cheesy breadsticks were a little tougher than I’d like but they were still yummy. I actually ate 4 of them but don’t have a picture of the other two… sorry!  To make you feel better though I will share this recipe with you:

Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup:

1 lb. Ground Hot Italian Sausage
1/2 tsp. crushed red peppers
1/2 large diced sweet onion
4 tbsp. bacon pieces
2 tsp. garlic puree
10 c. water
5 cubes of chicken bouillon
1 c. heavy cream
1 lb. sliced yellow potatoes (so you don’t have to peel them)
1/4 bunch of kale

In a soup pot sautee Italian sausage and crushed red peppers in a little oil. When cooked through set aside in another dish. In the the same pan cook onion, bacon and garlic for about 15 minutes or until onions are clear. Add the water and bouillon and bring to a boil. Once boiling add the potatoes and cook on medium until potatoes are soft (about 30 minutes). Add cream and sausage. When ready to serve add the kale. Enjoy!
