This Crockpot Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana is one of my favorite copycat restaurant soup recipes. Make this Olive Garden crockpot soup today.

I haven’t had this Zuppa Toscana recipe from Olive Garden in a while since I haven’t visited the restaurant. So, I decided to try to make it myself. I’m sure that the original recipe wasn’t made in a crockpot but it’s just the easiest way for me to make soup. 

So, Zuppa Toscana is Italian for Tuscan soup. It’s a traditional Italian soup that has Italian sausage, red peppers, diced white onion, bacon, bouillon, heavy cream, and kale.

As the name suggests, it originated in the Tuscany region of Italy. It’s a rich, hearty soup that makes a meal on its own. Of course, you can also serve it with a thick slice of Italian bread and butter.
