This is sooooo delicious. I love the Zuppa Toscana at Olive Garden, and think that this was equally good, if not better.
I strayed from the recipe a teeny bit. I cooked the bacon, sausage, and onions at same time in frying pan. (In the future I'll do the onions separately, as they seemed to cook quite a bit faster than the two meats.) I used Jimmy Dean ground sausage, about 3/4 lb. I chopped up the bacon before cooking it.
Next time I will consider using 4 cups chicken broth in lieu of the chicken soup base and quart (4 cups) of water. I had never heard of chicken soup base before, and wasn't sure what the impact would be of the substitution, so I stuck with the recipe this time around.
Next time I'll add fresh mushrooms, too. No additional seasoning was necessary. The soup was absolutely fantastic.
