olive garden zuppa toscana soup

Recipe by
Regina Tolentino
Wasco, OR

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!
