I was debating between another recipe and this one and am very pleased on choosing this one! Although I did make a couple minor changes, it did not alter the basic flavors that the creator intended, therefore the high rating. Did cut back on the amount of pepper called for, no potatoes on hand so that was omitted, and finally thought a little additional flavor would enhance the broth so i added a small amount of dried crushed rosemary. Will be using this one again for sure!
We really didn't care for this dish. It was too mushy for a soup and was on the salty side. Maybe the potatoes we used were all too big, but the soup was more like a stew. We had to add a lot more water to make it an appropriate soup. Flavor was OK, but not impressive.
This is a wonderfully hearty soup. I increase the beans to two cans and omit the pasta. Sometimes I add a few red pepper flakes to turn up the heat. My son asks me to make this soup on a regular basis.
I was recently introduced to kale and wanted to find more ways to use it. This was a great way to incorporate it into a soup! I did make some substitutions/omissions based on what I had. I used fresh kielbasa instead of the smoked, fully cooked kind because I was out (I think mild Italian sausage would probably also be great), and I also was out of potatoes. I sauteed the onions and sausage in the oil, then added the carrots, and then the kale, before finally putting in the broth. Once that came to a boil I added the macaroni and garlic (without letting it simmer 45 minutes), which was cooked in about 9 minutes, and lastly I added the beans. So it ended up being a quick, delicious, nutritious soup, and my husband raved about it all evening. We forgot about the parmesan, but I'd like to try that on it next time.
I tried the recipe, but I should notate here about using kale from recipe. It says one bunch of kale, but bunches can be quite big and it can overpower other ingredients. I would say use 3 big leaves of kale for this recipe and it would do it. I had to add more chicken broth to make it more soupy instead of a stew. Just use a little bit less kale. I am also put less noodles in this soup, I put half a cup of noodles instead of one cup. I totally omitted salt and put a little bit of pepper. Otherwise, it's very hearty and healthy soup.
This is on my Soup List for certain! The only minor changes I made was to "go easy" on both salt & pepper plus I use sweet Italian sausage as that was what I had in my freezer but will definitely try a Polish sausage next time. Thank you rn.leeann for this creation!
So tasty! I used mixed beans and added barley instead of noodles and it's great! Nice alternative to a stew. Perfect with a tall glass of milk!
I have made this many times and everyone loves it and asks for the recipe. I agree with others that the pasta can be swapped out for another bean. I use black beans in the can. Don't be timid with the kale. It really makes the dish.
