My Toscano Soup

Sarah Hehn


This is a mild spicy soup that is perfect on a cold day. This is my take on the soup served at Olive Garden which I love. Instead of kale I use escarole or spinach as a preference for my family.

It’s so easy to make and makes a very large pot to feed a crowd. Cut the recipe in half if not so much soup is desired.
