"This is a creamy, rich, delicious soup. Most of the people I cook for are very picky and this one turned out to be a crowd pleaser. Serve with fresh Italian bread on a cold winter's night! This soup would be great with either chicken or even meatballs instead of sausage; that just happened to be what I had on hand that particular day." — Kathy's Kitchen

I used a pound of ground turkey that I spiced up to fake pork sausage (rubbed sage, marjoram, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, basil red pepper flake, salt/pepper) and I cut back on the flour to a quarter cup only because I didn't want a thick soup. I also used a homemade onion soup mixture as I am sensitive to MSG and most pre-packaged onion soup mix has MSG. This was good. For us, it had a little too much cream. I would use more broth next time and cut the cream back considerably.
This soup is excellent. Mine came out extremely thick so I doubled the broth and still thought is was a little thick so I added about three more cups of broth. It was still rich and creamy. I also used milk instead of half and half. Very tasty. My family and I really enjoyed this. I will absolutely make this again.
We really loved this. Only added 1/2 cup of the flour but added a handful or parm at the end to the soup. Also threw in the left over stock from the box, probably 1/2 cup. I also added 1/2 tsp red pepper flakes and 1/2 tsp oregano. Will definitely make this again!
This is so delicious! The only change I would make is instead of making it as a soup, I'd pour it over tortellini (more like a sauce) instead of adding the tortellini to the soup. As a soup, it is very thick and quite rich. But it really was delicious. Will definitely make it again.
Yum! Very good soup. It turns out like a rich tomato bisque, actually, with tortellini. I did make a few changes based on what we had on hand. I don't have or use half and half because I'm lactose intolerant; instead, I used skim milk (the only milk I can stomach) and it was fine, dried basil bc I have no fresh, and left out the sausage. Unlike others, I didn't modify the flour amount but did add a cup more chicken broth (my cans have two cups and I didn't want to deal with half a can) and left out the sausage. I think it would be good with sausage, but I don't think it's necessary. This soup has a lot going on already and is rich enough we didn't miss the meat. Very good with bread, or grilled cheese as we had it with. Thanks for the recipe!
This was really good. 3/4 cup flour would have been a lot though. I used about 1/4 cup and it was still quite thick to me. I also less liquid though, about 2.5 cups broth and 1 cup half n half, because that's what I had. It was creamy enough for me, though the 2 cups would probably have been fine too, I think. I also forgot to buy the sausage for this. I liked it a lot without it and can't decide whether I think I'd like it more or less with the sausage. I think it'd add nice flavour but I'm not overly big on meaty soups; if I were to make this with sausge, I'd definitely only use 2 or 3 links. I also only bought one package tortellini; it was plenty. The wine added really nice flavour. I was worried it might be too much because it was all I could smell while the soup was simmering, but it wasn't overpowering at all. I added quite a bit of parmesan cheese on top, it was delicious melting into the soup. All in all, I enjoyed very much, thanks for sharing the recipe!
I wish i could give this recipe 10 stars! so good! The only thing I changed was I used Asiago cheese on top because that's what I had on hand.
Delicious, but I did make a few adjustments in amounts...I only used 1/2 cup flour, and probably could've used even less, and I used a whole carton (32oz.) of chicken broth. My only other change was to reduce the half & half (I used heavy cream b/c that's what I had) to 1 cup, and that was the perfect consistancy for us. This is a super flavorful, hearty soup that I will def be making again! Thanks for sharing. :)
