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!
We really enjoyed this soup with crusty bread for lunch. I needed to make a few changes due to the unavailability of the smoked Johnsonville sausage at my market. I used Jville hot Italian sausage, homemade chicken stock and Italian fava beans instead of zucchini, as I had none. Very good! Would I make it again? Yes, definitely. Love Jville products!
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 was awesome! I used ground Italian Sausage, and browned it with the garlic and onion. Didn't have zucchini, so substituted green beans. Delicious, and will make again!
This soup was really tasty. The sausage was nice and the soup came together really quickly. Served with garlic toast. Great for a cold day. And the leftovers reheated very well.
This is, hands down, the BEST soup I've ever eaten. The only change I made was that I used a package of sweet italian sausage instead of the sausage in the recipe. I will definitely be making more of this soup. I hope it freezes well because I will really enjoy it on a cold, winter day.
My family loved this. It was even better the next day. The zucchini was such a nice change of pace and the carrots had that wonderful 'soup stock' taste. Would most definitely make this one again!
