Tastes just like Olive Garden!  You will love this slow cooker recipe!

If you love Olive Garden’s Zuppa Tuscana you are going to love this Copycat version that you make in the crockpot. Melissa gave me the recipe and at first I wasn’t sure I would like it because I have never eaten it at Olive Garden. I thought why not give it a shot! This slow cooker soup recipe is beyond amazing and only requires a few ingredients! That’s a win for me. It is perfect on an Autumn or Winter day.

  6. rambocat says:

    Will this work in a 4qt crock pot?

  7. Could I use spinach instead?

  8. when do you add the OTHER 5 cups chicken broth?

  9. this recipe makes no sense….what do you need 5 c broth and 2 cups of kale for if you don’t use it?

  10. This recipe is fantastic!! My husband and I love the Olive Garden soups, and the Zuppa Tuscana is my absolute favorite. We made this recipe yesterday and added some red pepper flakes while browning the sausage, and added 2t more red pepper flakes when combining it all in the crock pot. Everything else we followed exactly.
    It turned out AMAZING. Exactly like the Olive Garden’s version!! About an hour after eating my husband said “I wish I were hungry so I could eat more of the soup!!”
    I shared this site with all my family, and highly recommend this! I can’t give it enough praise :) :) Thank you so much for sharing this fantastic, EASY and delicious recipe!!!

    Come Back Soon,

  13. This looks a lot easier than the one I make, I will have to give it a try b/c I love this soup!

  14. Hey! Love this post! Just wanted you to know that you’re being featured at the Pin It Party on tonight! Have a good night!

  15. WOW! A new family favorite! I doubled the recipe, as I usually do, because of teenagers. I have to say…is it possible that your recipe has a tiny little typo? Should that read two TEASPOONS of minced garlic and not two TABLESPOONS? We all LOVE garlic here, and the soup was still fabulous…but my word, it was positively spicy with the garlic! When I tasted it cold(the next day) it no doubt tasted just like the soup it is based on…but was hidden behind the garlic. Again…we love garlic, but I wonder…..
