This was fabulous! I used the advice given by others (sort by "most helpful" under reviews). 8 cups of chicken boullion - I am a very new cook, so the canned kind. I used real garlic cloves (3) instead of powder. I diced everything very fine and put it in. Instead of sausage, I used a leftover ham bone I had stored in the freezer. After 5 hours, I took out the ham bone and put everything through the blender (my kids won't eat anything that has different textures or competing colors). I did not have potatoes so after an extensive internet search, I added instant flakes - Betty Crocker - about 1/3 cup. It thickened the soup perfectly (I whisked the soup to get out all lumps). Then I cut up the ham and put it in (I pick it out when I prepare a bowl for my children). I did add salt - note for those cooking impaired - if you add salt that's not granulated, wait a few minutes for it to dissolve before adding more. This recipe was so easy and so fabulous. My husband LOVED it, my kids liked it (this is huge), and I felt like an expert cook. If you are new to cooking, start here. You will be excited to try more recipes.
