Crock-Pot Zuppa Toscana Soup

I love to eat out at restaurants. My budget doesn’t necessarily love me doing that on a regular basis. I am always trying to make our favorite restaurant style foods in my kitchen. My kids love that mom can make their favorite restaurant foods at home. They also love to brag to their friends and get mom to make those same foods for sleepovers!

This is not one that I made for the kids. This was purely for my enjoyment. I love Olive Garden. They have delicious breadsticks and their soups are out of this world. This is a copycat of their Zuppa Toscana Soup recipe.  Not exactly their recipe, but it is a very close second.
