I didn't have all of the ingredients on hand, so I improvised a bit. I used mild Italian pork sausage, instead of turkey. I think I'd try the turkey next time as the the pork was almost too overwhelming. I used 2 cans of plain diced tomatoes and I chopped pre-cooked fettucini pasta (I had leftover pasta from the night before). I prefer fresh vegetables over frozen, so I chopped up approx. 3/4 cup of carrots, used 2 small zucchini, added approximately 8 oz. of spinach, and 2 stalks of celery slices. I also added a small can of tomato sauce, just to give it a more tomato based broth. To keep the soup from being too thick, I used 8 cups of chicken broth instead of 6, and I also added approx. 10 cups of water. With all of the fresh vegetables and the cooking time, the amount of water ended up being perfect - not too thick not too watery. Overall, it was a good soup. I'd definitely make it again, next time with turkey sausage though!
