This is an excellent recipe. It was quick and easy. My sons ages 12 and 13 made it for supper. We all really enjoyed it. The meats seasoned the entire broth without any spices added. 5 stars!

This recipe was okay, but it just seemed to be missing something. I would have liked to add some green leafy veggie (spinach, kale, swiss chard...) but I did not have any on hand so I added a frozen stir-fry mixture. I also did not care for the salami at all. I love salami, but it just did not work in this recipe. I also added about 1 cup of shredded cheese to give it a bit of a creaminess. at the table I had parm cheese and mozz cheese for people to sprinkle on their soup. This dish was acceptable with the changes, but I don't think I'll make it again.

I tried this one night when desperately seeking a recipe that would use only items I had in the cabinet or freezer. This one fit the bill, and was tastier than I expected for something so easy and quick. It's not gourmet, but it's hot, very tasty, almost unbelievably fast, and filling. That's usually everything I'm looking for on a fall evening after work. To suit my own tastes, I threw in a brick of frozen spinach along with the sausage and onions, and let that cook in as well -- added to appearance, nutrition and flavor.

I was tempted to use italian flavored stewed tomatos for some additional flavor but I am glad I didn't. The sausage flavors the broth more than enough without the additional spices. Since my family doesn't care for a lot of chuncky tomato, I substituted 1 large can of crushed tomatoes for 1 can of stewed tomatoes. The flavor and consistency of the broth was perfect. The one thing I plan on trying the next time I make this is to replace the rotini noodles with cheese filled tortilini noodles. I think this would be a great variation on an already great soup.

Wanted a fast, good simple soup, and this filled the bill. Only thing I added was a pinch of Italian seasoning, and I used hot sausage as that's all I had. A little fresh parmesan grated over the top, and we were all happy!

Delicious! I loved it with Jalapenos!

This was super easy and my boyfriend loved it. When we reheated the leftovers the next night, tho, the pasta began to get mushy. That's probably expected though. I didnt have beef broth so I used bullion cubes... worked fine... I also didnt have salami, so I should have added something else to boost the flavor in place of it. Shred parmesan on top and serve with crusty bread!

Did not do anything different and this was very good and easy.
