My husband is a huge fan of the Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Recipe, so I created a knock off version that is delicious! If you have never had this soup then you are missing out. The soup has a creamy base with potatoes, kielbasa sausage and some melt in your mouth cooked kale. Please do me a favor and make this soup for dinner tonight. You can thank me later.

  1. THANKS A MILLION for posting a recipe that calls for chicken broth! 🙂 I only have, um, (nervously glaces away) something like 45 or 50 cartons of it from the big ALbertsons sale a few weeks ago. The soup sounds yummy! Looking forward to trying it!

  2. I cooked this for dinner today. The hardest part is cutting everything up. The best part is it is warming and filling. Thanks for the recipe. Tis the season for soups!

  3. My heavy cream was 4.00 (not very good deal here in Alaska) and I used 8 bollion cubes instead of chicken broth. Pretty much I paid full price for everything but it was still affordable. Thanks

  4. Oh yeah, my rolls (I will make them homemade next time) but they were 3.99 for 6. Can you believe that!

  5. I just found your site today and am excited about trying several of your recipes! What kind of sausage did you use for this soup? I’m guessing smoked sausage by the picture, but I just wanted to be sure before I went grocery shopping. Thanks!
