"This is great as thick soup served with French bread or served over rice or noodles. Better the next day!"

1 1/2 pounds

Loved this soup! I did use hot Italian turkey sausage out of the casing. I used 2 (15oz) cans of diced tomatoes with garlic and oregano instead of the 2 (28oz)cans. I also added 4c of fat free low sodium chicken broth to this....how else is it a soup if there is no broth or liquid? I did add small diced carrots to the onion and celery and used a frozen bag of red, yellow and green peppers that were sliced, 2 medium zucchini and I added a can of drained and rinsed small white beans. Very hearty and delicious. I ate mine with red hot pepper flakes, pecorino romano and a few crunchy croutons. Thanks!
Recipe is great, added more seasoning, added feta cheese and used spicy Italian sausage and I found it too thick to be a soup so I added a bottle of beer which made it even better and more soup like. Awesome w/ some French bread
Used spicy Italian sausage, otherwise wouldn't recommend any changes on the recipe! So far I have created open-faced sandwich with a toasted sesame bun, mixed it with Orecchiette pasta, and as a soup with oyster crackers. Always with Parmesan cheese please! Made it on Monday night and ate great the whole week. Thank you Jennifer!
Great soup! My husband had 4 bowls, my young boys and mom loved it too! Here's my changes: didnt have celery so i used celery flakes, seeds, celery salt instead. 3 oz tomato paste instead of tomatoes (might use more next time- tomato flavor wasnt detectable) about 2 cups homemade beef broth and 2 cups chicken broth, then another 4 cups at the end! (I don't like stew-like consistency). I didn't have green peppers. Subbed fresh basil because I had it (it added another texture too). I also threw in a little uncooked leftover penne pasta near the end. What I'd change: cook the onion on the pan first after the sausage. It might be my fault because the beef broth was frozen (I had to cook the soup longer) but my onions were still a little crunchy. It was ok and gave texture but not my best liking. But like I said might not be the case when cooked according the recipe! Still next time I'd sauté them first.
Excellent! This delicious recipe is simple to make in the slow cooker, with chicken meatballs from Costco. It's been served weekly in my household since I discovered it and no one's complained yet.
I cooked this as the directions said with no changes, very easy and very flavorful. I even brought some to the neighbors , great on these cold days.
Loved this, but did do a few changes. I used the Italian sausage out of the casing, and all the other ingredients. I did add a box of vegetable broth from Trader Joes, which made it a soup rather than stew. And I added light red kidney bean, as well as a can of cannellini beans. This soup had wonderful flavors and was visually appealing as well. A great family meal, or a perfect meal for guests.
A new favorite in our house. My husband and I love this recipe! I left out the sausage and used a can of Progresso Roasted Tomato Recipe Starters and a can of regular tomato sauce in place of cans of diced tomatoes.
