Olive Garden - Gluten Free?!?!

So Hubby and I went out to lunch last week - it was a cold and snowy day so soup sounded perfect! And what better place to get soup than Olive Garden??

I ordered the:

Zuppa Toscana

Spicy sausage, russet potatoes and

cavolo greens in a creamy broth.

And Hubby got the:
Chicken & Gnocchi

A creamy soup made with roasted chicken,

traditional Italian dumplings and spinach.


During this visit our waiter "Disney" told us that they have a Gluten Free Menu! I had NO idea they did so I thought - why not share it with the world! Obviously OUR choices were not Gluten Free haha BUT I have many friends that need this type of Diet so I wanted to share it with everyone!

Hi those soups look so delicious, I recommend this place, food is good, I go with my girlfriend sometimes. These soups are good when weather is cold and then things get hotter at home, the medicine generic viagra can help you to keep you excited in the great moment at night, after eating a nice soup.
