Olive Garden's Zuppa Toscana

 My husband and I are such huge fans of Olive Garden we could easily eat there once a week!  If you've ever been to Olive Garden, you know they offer soup or salad with any meal.  Well, we can answer that question without even thinking!  Zuppa Toscana! It is a potato based soup with some veggies and greens and a little bit of spice.  I really hope you like this recipe as much as we do!
