Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana


This soup is amazing! It seriously may be my favorite soup! The sausage makes it perfectly spicy and salty, the collard greens give it a wonderful presentation. The longer you let it simmer, the better (though you may need to add more stock). The potatoes become almost part of the broth and gives it a wonderful, thick texture. This soup is amazing! Just make it, it’s really easy and won’t disappoint you! Here’s the recipe for this really good soup:

For the soup:

  • 2 3/4 cups chicken stock
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 medium russet potato
  • 2 cups chopped collard green leaves
  • 1/2 lb. Italian sausage
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper flakes

1. Stir the chicken stock and cream it a saucepan over medium heat. 2. Cube the unpeeled potato into bite-sized pieces and add them to the soup with the collard greens. 3. Cook the sausage and add it to the soup. 4. Add the salt and red pepper flakes and simmer the soup for two hours (if you’re in a hurry, you don’t have to).
