Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup

We have been on a soup kick recently and this Creamy Zuppa Toscana Soup is definitely one of our recent favorites.

On the weekends I’ve been making large batches and freezing for later so we have a nice soup variety for the cooler months. I whipped up a batch of Creamy Zuppa Toscana Soup and it was so good we didn’t have any left over to freeze!

The soup is actually an Olive Garden copycat recipe. And since you can’t eat an Olive Garden soup without breadsticks, I served Cheesy Rosemary Croissants on the side! So good. I mean so, so, SO good.

Creamy Zuppa Toscana Soup {Olive Garden Copycat}


  • 4 slices bacon, diced
  • 1 lb spicy Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 russet potatoes, peeled & thinly sliced
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • salt & pepper, to taste


  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon until brown and crispy, about 6-8 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate. Crumble and set aside.
  2. Add Italian sausage to the skillet and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, crumbling the sausage as it cooks; drain excess fat and set aside.
  3. Skin and cut potatoes in ¼ inch slices.
  4. In a large stockpot, add garlic and onion, and cook on medium heat, stirring frequently, until onions have become translucent, about 2-3 minutes.
  5. Stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Add potatoes and cook until tender, about 10 minutes.
  6. Stir in sausage and spinach until spinach begins to wilt, about 1-2 minutes. Reduce heat and stir in heavy cream. Cook until heated through, about 1 minute; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  7. Serve immediately, garnished with bacon.
