A soup from the Olive Garden – Zuppa Toscana. I have the recipe, but made it 10x better than theirs.  I add more stuff and make it chunkier. Yummy!

@lovekiss:  I do the same but I always feel like the broth ends up being too greasy, even if I skim the fat. Do you take off the skin first?

Oh! My other favorite soup to make is Zuppa Tuscana (Olive Garden Soup)

Here’s the easy recipe:

First cook 1 lb italian sausage, drain and set to the side

Then in the same large stovepot, cook 1 package of bacon, save a bit of the bacon grease in the bottom of the pot, and set the bacon to the side.

In the bacon grease, sautee 1 chopped onion until it is transparent and soft.

Add some garlic.

Chop up 2-3 decent sized potatoes, add them to the onion/garlic sautee, and brown until they are tender, but not completely fork tender.

Then add back in the sausage and bacon (to the potatoes)

Add in 6 cups of chicken broth, bring to a simmer.

Simmer for 2-3 hours to bring out the flavors and finish cooking the potatoes.

At the end, add in 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and half a bunch of kale (deribbed and chopped)

Simmer a bit more until the kale is still bright green, but cooked. Add in some fresh ground black pepper and a dash of red pepper for some heat. 

That’s it!! Tastes exactly like Olive Garden Soup 😀

@AlwaysSunny:  I don’t remove the skin during the broth making step. But I will say that I have better results now using free range chicken from my local farm than I did when I used supermarket chicken. The true free range chicken is leaner and has more flavor than anything I was able to buy in a store. I was surprised at the difference.

My Future Mother-In-Law makes a fantastic mulligatawny soup (it’s an Indian soup that includes chicken, rice, and apple).

I’ve started adding diced apple to my homemade vegetable soups.  It adds a touch of tangy sweetness I love.
