Gluten Free Zuppa Toscana

Before I got diagnosed with Celiac Disease one of my favorite restaurants was the Olive Garden; I especially loved their “Zuppa Toscana” {Tuscan Soup}. While Olive Garden does now offer some gluten free options, this soup is sadly not one of them.  I think we’ve figured out a pretty good alternative!
