Delicious Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana Soup (copycat recipe) made with Swiss Chard, Italian sausage (bratwursts will work too), potatoes, and bacon. Made in one pot, the soup takes only 40 minutes to make (including idle time while everything is simmering)!
I never realized that a soup with such a fancy name as Zuppa Toscana is so easy to make! This soup is usually made with kale, but I had lots of Swiss chard so I thought I would use that instead. I loved the addition of Swiss chard in this soup! Here are all major ingredients I used:
The cooking process is very easy: everything is done in one pot. First, you cook the sausage with onions, then add water and bring to boil. Next, add potatoes and garlic, and simmer until potatoes are soft. Finally, add Swiss chard, bacon, and half-and-half. That’s it!
The soup tastes even better the next day, or two and even three days later, after being refrigerated, which allows all flavors to blend in. Enjoy!
