This soup is one of my favorites from Olive Garden and now you can make it at home. My whole family gobbled it up. To add more heat, use a hot sausage or add more crushed red pepper flakes.
You could easily make this recipe, to best suit your family’s needs and taste buds, but we personally like a little bit of spice, just not too much.
This recipe is perfect to get you warm on a cold chilly day. It is so simple to make, and is full of flavor. It is also pretty filling. We make it with our Easy Cheesy Sticks, and dip it in the hot broth. It is delicious.

does my meat have to be pre-cooked or does it cook in the soup?
We highly recommend cooking your meat separately. This will keep out extra grease, and allow you to rinse and drain the excess.
how to make the soup more healthy
I am a big soup lover. I don’t care what is in it, I will most likely love it. This soup recipe is one of my favorites, because it is so versatile. you can pair it with any meat, and it will still taste delicious.
If you are looking for a few healthier alternatives, I recommend adding turkey sausage instead of Italian beef or pork sausage. You can also buy turkey sausage, with and Italian twist to it, so it hardly tastes different.
You can also substitute the pork bacon for turkey bacon. It does cook a little differently so read the instructions on how to prepare it.
You could also add your favorite vegetables, not on the ingredients list, in the recipe. I love adding carrots and zucchini to mine.
