Good fall soup! I used Johnsonville Smoked Sausage, and I feel that using the Italian flavored sausage would be a better choice, flavor-wise. The smoked sausage has a meaty taste in the soup, but it doesn't add a flavor "kick" like a different selection would. I omitted the olive oil, because heating the sausage in the pan released more than enough drippings to saute the veggies, as I suspected it might. As a matter of fact, it was just a bit oily tasting, even, with no added oil. Other than that, I found the cooking times to be accurate, and it filled my 6 quart pot, so there are lefties for lunch! My only change was to use Italian style diced tomatoes. There is no need for any added salt, in my opinion, because the canned items have quite enough, and then some, for the veggies. This is a hearty soup that comes together quickly, once the prep is done.

I made this recipe exactly as written and it was delicious! I have made similar soups in the past but using the Johnsonville smoked sausage made this one stand apart. You could taste the richness and depth of flavor in every single bite. If I had one critique it would be that the it was a bit oily. The next time I make this I will saute the onions, carrots, and garlic with the sausage which should yield enough grease without having to add the olive oil. This soup was packed full of flavor and left a lasting impression!

This was a great soup! I used a spinach and chicken ravioli instead of the tortellini and I forgot to put in the zucchini. Oops! We will definitely be making this one again. Next time we'll just cut the sausage pieces in half instead of quarters, I wanted bigger pieces in my bites. We served this with a fresh salad and a crusty bread. Delish!

I had this for lunch, and it was great. The weather is finally turning into the perfect weather for soup. The Johnsonville sausage really made this soup exceptional. I'm glad I have enough of this for lunch tomorrow!

This is a great soup for fall, it makes a perfect comfort food. I used Johnsonville's Smoked Sausages as I thought using the ones with cheese would make the soup to cheesy and provably a little bit oily. I added just one table spoon of olive oil to add flavor, the sausages are oily enough to stir fry the onion, garlic and carrots. I added the tomatoes and seasoned them with the mix for two minutes. The rest it's the same from the original recipe. My family and I really enjoyed it and will definitely make it again!

I can not rave enough about this soup, I'd give it 10 stars if I could! It is the perfect fall meal that you can make for your family even after a long day at work, it's so simple...but oh so good! I followed another reviewers advice and used the Johnsonville 3 cheese Italian Style Chicken Sausage, but I still used the beef consommé, and added in some celery. It was so delicious, served it with a loaf of crusty garlic rosemary bread!

Perfect fall soup! Husband approved! I used the New Orleans sausage, which gave a nice rich flavor to the soup. This recipe is now part of my recipe box favorites.
