Skinny Zuppa Toscana Italian Soup Recipe

Skinny Zuppa Toscana Italian Soup Recipe

How to make a Skinny version of the delicious Zuppa Toscana Soup that you would find at great Italian restaurants such as Olive Garden. This is my family's favorite soup ever since a friend of mine re-introduced it to me over the holidays. I had completely forgotten about it since my family rarely eats out at restaurants ever since we've had our newest edition. Now that she's a toddler she cannot sit for an entire dinner out...and who blames her, she's a curious toddler!

Anyways, this is also one of my parent's favorite soups. When I was in high school they use to go the lunch for the special with soup, salad, and bread sticks during their lunch hour with the entire office. This soup is one of the favorites.

I wanted to create a Skinny version of the Zuppa Toscana soup since my family eats on the healthier side of the spectrum yet we have our 'cheat' meals every so often. This version is a little bit lighter and yet it doesn't take away from the famous flavor of Zuppa Toscana that it is known and loved for! I've included both versions in case you would like the regular ingredients.
