Slow Cooker Zuppa Toscana Soup

My favorite soup of all time is Zuppa Toscana Soup. You may have heard of it or even had the Olive Garden version of the soup. This flavor of this soup is amazing and I do a happy dance whenever I eat a bowl.  Because the weather has been cold and snowy on the East Coast, I decided to whip up some of this comfort soup. If you’ve never had Zuppa Toscana soup, you will love it. I use ground pork in the soup, which adds additional flavor, but if you’re not a pork eater, you can try a flavored chicken sausage! I hope you enjoy Zuppa Toscana soup as much as I do and it becomes a winter staple in your house.
