This got such rave reviews that I went ahead and doubled it because I had alot of Italian sweet sausage to use up. My family has decided that they prefers hot sausage in just about everything. I have to say I was very disappointed. It was extremely bland. I don't know what I did wrong. The sausage didn't seem to flavor the broth and in an effort to get it to do so I ended up cooking it on low for hours. I added pizza sauce, hot Italian sausage that I cooked separately, crushed red pepper flakes and 4 cloves of garlic. It helped a lot but I still don't see what everyone is raving about. I didn't dare add pasta because I think that would have marginalized the flavor even further. Update: I originally gave this 3 stars because the broth became more flavorful with my alterations. Unfortunately, cooking the sausage for so long, while making the broth more flavorful, made the sausage tasteless and mealy. I think that the sausage is the problem and would probably resist any soup recipe calling for sausage in the future.
