this was always our favorite soup at Olive Garden, but very salty and I wanted a version for anytime. So I created my own (according to my husband and others) better and healthied version.

How to Make Tuscan Soup A la Olive Garden!

Step-by-Step

  1. In some olive oil sauté the onion and garlic until soft.
    Add the dried thyme and stir in.
  2. Add chicken base and water. Or use 2 Qt. chicken stock. Add the bay leaf.
  3. Add Potatoes. If using frozen hash browns. No need to thaw.
    Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer
  4. Brown the sausage, breaking it up into small chunks, and drain. I like Jimmy Dean Spicy Sausage. It renders out hardly any fat!

    Taste for extra salt?
