The end result is quite blissful. No one will ever be able to tell that this soup is a lightened up version of the Olive Garden staple. This warm and rather hearty soup was the perfect way to end a chilly winter day here in the desert. Can't wait to make it again. Don't forget to serve with warm sourdough or rustic Italian bread with dipping oil & vinegar.

How to Make Skinny Zuppa Toscana Soup


  1. Place bacon into a large soup pot or dutch oven and cook over medium heat until cooked and crispy. Remove bacon to a dry paper towel and set aside to use for garnish.
  2. Place the sausage into the pot with the bacon grease and cook until nearly cooked through. Add in the onion and garlic and continue to cook until the sausage is browned and the onions are translucent.
  3. Once the veggies are tender and the meat is cooked, add in the chicken broth and potatoes and bring it all to a boil. Reduce the heat down to medium and simmer to cook for about another 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
  4. Finally, toss in the spinach and pour in the half & half. Heat through for a minute or two and season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove from the heat and serve right away with a sprinkle of bacon for garnish. Enjoy!
