One thing this family looooves is Olive Garden. They have great entrees, but I think most of us know why you go to Olive Garden. It’s the soup, salad, and breadsticks, am I right?
For me, it’s the Zuppa Toscana, which I think is amazing. I’ve never actually ordered anything else because if I’m eating that, I’m not eating the zuppa, which would be sad. For my husband, though, it’s the chicken gnocchi soup.
That’s why I spent the week leading up to our half year anniversary coming up with a recipe that tasted like we’d gone to Olive Garden (Yes, we did celebrate our half year anniversary the first year. We’re cute like that.)
This light version of the Olive Garden classic comes from Erin Sellers over at Dinners, Dishes, and Desserts (a great blog, if you’re interested). I made a few tweaks and came out with something I could be proud of. It’s light, it’s creamy, it’s super pretty, and it makes my husband happy. What more could you want in a copycat recipe?
