Instant Pot Zuppa Toscana

Have you ever gone to a restaurant, ate the most amazing dish and you just love? Then you go home and think, “Man, I wish I could have that again.” This is one of those dishes that is so amazing at Olive Garden. Olive Garden is one of my favorite restaurants, and so it’s fun to be able to make this dish myself. If you have never had their Zuppa Toscana you don’t have to miss out. You can make it right here right now in the comfort of your own home. Last year I received a Instant Pot as a gift for Christmas. It has been a great gift that I continue to enjoy often.






I am sure some of you were so fortunate to get one this year for Christmas. They are of course still a very popular item on the market. If you have yet to use your new Instant Pot, today is the day! You can make this delicious and hearty Zuppa Toscana at home in your Instant Pot. It is filled with Italian sausage, kale, potatoes, onions, carrots, celery and garlic.

I have shared a few other Instant Pot recipes before, but I think this is my new favorite. I have made it twice now for my family, and we are all in heaven when I do so. My kids even love it and that is saying something. They are big fans of kale now. When if I asked them to eat kale in a big green salad I think that the answer would of been a big fat NO! The great part about making this soup in the Instant Pot is that it only takes 10 minutes to cook. You really can’t beat that! You won’t be dissapointed with my recipe of Zuppa Toscana. It’s creamy, filling and with just a touch of spice. It hits the spot for sure.
