My daughter does not like tomato but loves this soup.  I really need this recipe so I can make it for her when I am out of money and can’t  go to Olive Garden.  Please can I have this because it is my favorite soup now at Olive Garden.

have not eaten this soup. Trying to re-create it only from the appearance. My cousin ate this and said it was yummy. I would like the recipe since soup is offered for a limited time

Ok, we don’t have an Olive Garden here in Alaska (yet) they are building one and I heard it will be done this month!  Anyway, everytime I see the commercial, I want this too! I’m thinking it has; tomato soup w/tomato chunks, “Florentine” indicates that there is spinach in it, and of course chicken, sliced potatoes, looks like thinly shredded carrots, probably onions, and it looks like cream of some kind, because it’s creamy looking, not like true tomato soup.  Progresso has a chunky one that it reminds me of.  I’m going to try to recreate it! 

Mamagohard, did you make this soup on Moday?    If so, how was it?  How does it compare to OG’s version?  I no longer have tranportation & can’t get to OG so have not tried the soup yet; but, like others, it looks so good on the commercial..

I made the recipe on the Internet today and found that the mozzarella made it very sticky and also the cream cheese really was not needed. I should have stopped with the recipe after adding the spinach. I cannot imagine what will it be light after the soup cools down as I have plenty left over. Also it took more than an hour for the sliced potatoes to be on the soft side at a simmer. This recipe needs some tweaking.

I would like to get the recipe for the chichen and potato floritine soup, Ilove all the olive garden soups, and can make a couple of them and would love to add this to my recipe book, ths.

For of you that is wondering if it is good!!  I ate there Saturday and ordered the soup.  So good that I ordered a gallon to take home and freeze.  I am eating a bowl right now for lunch.  I also would love, love love the recipe.  Somebody out there put us out of our misery and give us this recipe or even “A taste alike” recipe

Found a site that lists the following recipe as OG’s Chicken Florentine Soup – not sure if it is or not.  If anyone tries it, please let me know.

I love this soup, an was very disappointed that it has been taken off the menu. I thought that since I could not get it at the restraruant, I would look the recipe up on line, only to find that it’s not there. I wpile love more of this wonderful soup

Drove 50 miles to Olive Garden to eat some more of this wonderful soup!  SO SAD….they took it off the menu!!  What in the world are they thinking???  This is the best soup they have ever had.  Hope someone else picks it up and Im there!   BOO on the heads that make and break menus.  Bad mistake  🙁

I’m not much of a soup eater but this new Chicken, potato florentine Soup is the best I’ve eaten. I’ve gone 2 times for it & hope to back again before it’s gone. I love the Olive Garden in Racine, Wi. they are very nice & great food!

WHY?! WHY?! WHY?! Why doesn’t Olive Garden put this amazing
Chicken & Potato Florentine Soup permanently on their menu?!!! Such a deliciously amazing and satisfying taste sensation!!!!!!! Seriously! All I can say is OMG!!!! I love this soup! When is it coming back? Please?!!!! I have not been able to get a straight answer from OG about why they don’t keep it on the menu. It has rave reviews. What’s up? I wonder? Ooooooh! I want some now………..
