Who doesn’t love The Olive Garden?  Warm bread sticks, salads with tangy dressings, warm pasta and soup = pure yumminess.  When I was pregnant and very, very nauseated, I fell in love with Olive Garden’s Zuppa Toscana.  It’s perfectly seasoned with a variety of textures and flavors.

However, it’s definitely not the healthiest soup.  It has heavy whipping cream, butter, bacon, and who knows what else.  Since I refuse to compromise on flavor and my health, I made a few tweaks (like using coconut milk instead of heavy whipping cream) and created this masterpiece!  Your family (nor your taste-buds) will know the difference.
