This was very good. I've never had Olive Gardens version so I can't compare. This recipe does make a lot of soup, it barely fit into my crockpot! I think next time I would halve the recipe as there is just two of us. I only used 1 lb of hamburger and I felt it was plenty, honestly I think 2 lbs would be too much.

We love it! I love the OG's and this tastes just like it. I missed the cheese they use :). I did add a dash of salt to mine to bring out the flavors. All my boys (even the picky eater) loves this soup. My husband still has to take me to the OG when we can get a babysitter, but this will fill in those times I crave it :). I love the fact it made so much. My hubby takes lunchs to work each day and this freezes so well. Thanks!

This recipe makes enough for a few armies. We didn't think it tasted anything like the Olive Garden kind.

This is excellent! My family loved it - especially my husband. Very flavorful and hearty - perfect during the winter months.

Couldn't be easier to make and it does taste like the Olive Garden version. Pair it with some crusty bread (or cornbread) and you have a tasty and hearty meal for a cold day.

This is the soup I always get at Olive Garden and I could tell absolutely no difference in my homemade and theirs. The recipe does make a lot, and filled my large crock pot to the brim. I didn't mind, it is even better the next day. Thanks for the recipe, it will be used often!

What a great recipe. It was so easy to make - and made enough for dinner and three lunches! I couldn't believe that I ran out of parsley in the middle of making it, so I added some Italian seasoning in its place. Thanks!

Tried this recipe tonight and it was a hit! It was so easy and delicious. My son who is very picky with his vegetables asked for seconds! This one is definitely a keeper!
