Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup

Who doesn’t love a good soup? Especially when the weather gets a bit cooler and you’re looking for yummy ways to warm up yourself and your family.

We really love this Italian Sausage Soup With Kale, and it has long been a household favorite. As copycat recipes go, this is one of the best you can possibly find. And while we can’t specifically say what this soup recipe is copycatting (for legal reasons) we can say that if you’re prone to visiting chain Italian restaurants, you’ve likely been there.
