Oh. My. Gossssshhhhh!!!!! This was soooooo good!!! Both my hubs and I REALLY enjoyed this! This is a SPOT in copycat of the "real deal." :) Although pretty much perfect as is, I made a few changes (I know, I know...). To help eliminate some of the greasiness others have warned about, I browned (HOT) sausage links in a bit of garlic infused EVOO, gently blotted them with paper towels after they had cooled and then roughly chopped them into bite-sized pieces. Because of this change, I omitted the pepper flakes altogether. I ended up using four good sized Russett potatoes and am glad I did. Six would have been FAR too many! Since the recipe submitter doesn't specify the size of potato to use, it's imperative to trust your gut on this one.... Six SMALL potatoes might be fine, but cut back if they are any larger than that. My final change was to substitute chopped kale for spinach (to more closely mimic the chain's soup). With these changes, this was one darn good soup! Garlic breadsticks rounded out our delicious meal. It will be a VERY long time before I make another visit to the "Garden" to satisfy my soup craving haha! Thanks SO much for sharing your secret recipe with the AR community, souporsweets! :-)
