I love when Olive Garden has their unlimited soup, salad, and breadsticks! It was always a treat to go in and indulge in their perfectly cooked breadsticks, a salad that has the best dressing ever, and of course the Zuppa Toscana soup! Zuppa Toscana Olive Garden Copycat Instant Pot Soup truly is savory and succulent. We eat soup all year round, more often in the winter months, and this is a soup I always keep in our rotation. Copycat Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup tastes just like the restaurant version, but you can make it in your instant pot. Plus it is incredibly easy and minimal effort needed for a fool-proof winning dish to serve to your family.
I rarely go to Olive Garden because I have used a lot of copycat recipes that give me the great flavors I am craving. It saves me time and money from having to leave the house, and each dish comes out just like the restaurant. Why buy it when you can make it at home with easy to find ingredients? To me, it is a no-brainer.
Zuppa Toscano soup is so different in flavors from other soups I have had over the years. It is a rich and creamy base with chunks of Italian sausage, bacon, chopped kale, and a variety of herbs and spices. Each bite is like a flavor explosion in your mouth of goodness. I am not sure any other soup has such a wide variety of flavors and textures like this one. I highly recommend trying out this Instant Pot version if you love the Olive Garden soup.
As you all know I have a strong love with my Instant Pot. You might like the whole month of Instant Pot meals on a Budget that you can cook each day of the week, all using your Instant Pot. I am determined to create all my favorite recipes into an adapted recipe using my Instant Pot. I am Insta-potting my way through the recipes, to bring you guys all my classics, favorites, copycats, and more. Let me assure you each recipe I put out will be a hit in your home if you like the ingredients! Just like this soup, it is something totally different and offers a unique flavor and texture with each bite, that really will be a pleasure to devour. This is one filling soup and reheats beautifully. Give it a try for a quick and easy weeknight meal, all things to our beloved Instant Pot!
