Skinny Zuppa Toscana Soup


Brrrr....it's January and it's COLD here in NE Ohio! That means it's healthy comfort food time...that means soup weather! If you are looking for the perfect soup to make, this Skinny Zuppa Toscana Soup will warm you right up.  It's made lighter by substituting pork sausage with turkey sausage and cream with evaporated skim milk, but has got all the flavor of the Olive Garden original, in a better for you version!
