A while back, my mom and I had lunch together at Olive Garden and we both got the soup/salad/bread lunch. This was when I first tried their Zuppa Toscana and I was immediately a huge fan. I couldn’t wait to try making it myself! I found a copycat recipe online that looked easy to lighten up and then I waited all Summer for the weather to cool off so I could make it and post it here for you all. Fall is finally here and so is soup season! I finally made this lightened up Zuppa Toscana (Italian for Tuscan Soup) and it was worth the wait. The serving size is huge and filling with hearty potatoes, spicy sausage, spinach, bacon and a creamy broth. You’ll never believe it’s only 236 calories or 5 Weight Watchers SmartPoints!
This Zuppa Toscana is quick and easy to make and perfect for those Fall and Winter months when you want something warm and hearty! You can also make this once and bring it for lunches throughout the week!
