Robbie's Copy Cat Recipies - Zuppa Toscana Soup like Olive Garden's®

Has anyone heard of this website?

Robbie's Copycat Recipies

I LOVE soups, in fact, I could probably eat soup and salad for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day of my life. So anyways, last night I tried the Zuppa Toscana Soup like at Olive Garden and I must is pretty spot on. I added zucchini because I love zucchini but it really didn't make it taste any different at all. If I were to do this again (which I will) I would not put as much sausage in it.

I have included the recipie below but strongly urge people to visit the site and try some of the other recipies out. If anyone tries one let us know how it went! I have the ingredients to make Bruchetta like at Carraba's next ;)
