Instant Pot Copycat Zuppa Toscana

This easy copycat recipe for Instant Pot Copycat Zuppa Toscana can be made in a pressure cooker and is loaded with big flavors – sausage, bacon, and kale make it delicious!

As many of you who have checked out my freezer meal boot camps know, I have quite a few copycat meals spotted throughout my meal plans! I love taking popular restaurant meals and giving them my own unique spin to make them freezer and Instant Pot-friendly.

One of my absolute favorites (and apparently one of the reader favorites too) is this Zuppa Toscana soup. It's the copycat of a popular Italian restaurant chain's famous soup and, if I do say so myself, tastes just like the real thing. It's so easy to make at home too – this one has one of the smallest ingredient lists in this whole series, but still packs a huge flavor punch!

Whether you make this one fresh of from a freezer meal, I think you guys are going to love how rich and comforting it is. I also rely on this one when I need a super quick meal – the prep day instructions are incredibly simple and quick.

As a reminder: I’ll be sharing a recipe for each week of the summer (10 weeks total). On the 11th week, I’ll have a full pack of printables, recipes, and prep instructions to make all of these recipes at once for your freezer, just like my other Freezer Meal Boot Camps! (UPDATE: The full freezer meal boot camp is now available here!) You can check out the other recipes in this series below:

In each of these posts, I’ll share how to make the recipe from either fresh or frozen. (And a note: if you’ve done my boot camps before, these recipes might vary slightly from the original version to make overall prep easier.)
