Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana Soup

My sister-in-law introduced this soup to us and now it is a staple in our household!

I typically use whole milk but the original recipe calls for cream, so use whatever you like best.

The soup is great served with a loaf of Italian or French bread.

Some people add fresh grated Parmesan to the soup, but I prefer it without.

Enjoy!
