The Best “Zoupa Toscana” Knockoff on the Block

Fall has me craving all the hearty soups! One of our family-favorites is an Olive Garden Zoupa Toscana knockoff.  It’s so good. It’s so easy. Therefore, I tend to serve it year round. My family doesn’t complain about that one bit. In fact, they request it.


32oz carton chicken broth

1 cup heavy whipping cream

6 medium red skin potatoes 

14 oz. spicy Italian sausage

1 teaspoon crushed pepper flakes {or to taste}

3 cups fresh spinach

Serves 4-6

Step 1: Brown the Italian sausage until crumbly and no longer pink. Drain the grease and set aside.

Step 2: In a pot combine the chicken broth & heavy cream, stir and leave on medium heat.

Step 3: Cut the potatoes into bite size cubes. Add them to the chicken broth and heavy cream. Increase the heat to medium-high.

Step 4: Add the Italian sausage & crushed pepper flakes to the pot.

Step 5: Allow the ingredients to simmer until the potatoes are soft.

Step 6: Lightly chop the fresh spinach and add it to the soup.  

Give it about 10 minutes to simmer with the added spinach and then it’s ready to serve!
