Made this soup last night for supper and it was wonderful. My husband commented several times how good it was and he's not a foodie like I am. I doubled the recipe so that I could freeze some for later and other than that, the only changes from the original recipe I made were: used half beef broth and half low-sodium chicken broth and I omitted the salt (because of comments of other reviewers...oh, and I was a little heavy handed on the garlic.) Eating the soup alone, it could have used a little salt but it was fine without. (Not knowing how salty my sausage was, I didn't want to overdo it and could add it at the end, if necessary.) Since we typically eat soup with crackers, we didn't need additional salt. Changes I would make the next time I make it: add more beans or pasta. We like a thick, hearty soup and additional beans or pasta would thicken it up a bit. If I have extra spinach, I will add it. Not that it needed more, but anytime I can add more greens is a bonus. We like our foods spicy at my house and considered using half sweet Italian sausage/half hot Italian sausage, but I'm not a huge hot Italian sausage fan. May try adding a little cayenne the next time...but it is delicious as is! Great recipe!
