This one is pretty good, however you can't be afraid to play with the ingredients depending on your tastes. To thick? Add as much water as you need to to thin it out to your liking. That goes for the next day as well. I used mild sausage and only one small pkg of pepperoni slices that I cut in half. I found out a long time ago that noodles sitting in soup makes mush. Cook the noodles first and keep them seperate from the soup until you dish it up. That way the soup won't thicken too much and the noodles stay firm. Hope this helps.
Tasted too much like spaghetti sauce and not enough like I thought pizza soup would taste. My husband said he would not want it again and he'll eat about anything without complaint. Like others said, macaroni should be added to each serving seperately and not left in the pot. I used the leftovers as a pasta sauce the second day.
This is great. My oldest child loved it, saying it was better than pizza. I put in an extra cup of water and it still came out pefect. Had it with garlic bread sticks and a salad. Will be making this from now on. I don't even like peppers (I pick them off my pizza) but I sure ate them in this. I used someone elses' idea and used 3 different colored peppers to give it different colors. :)
Made exactly as written except that I only used 1 pound of sausage. This was indeed spicy as stated and it had a wonderful flavor. The only reason I am giving it a 4 and not a 5 is because as written you end up with a pizza bake type thing and not a soup. This definitely requires more water than called for if you want soup. I was afraid I would lose a lot of flavor by adding more water but it really didn't. I added some olives for topping. Very flavorful soup and one I will make again.
We loved this. I added 2 extra cups of water and found that it took 30 minutes for the macaroni to cook. Even better the second day. Much like a goulash on day 2.
This was a hit! It made alot so we invited our neighbors to share it with us, they loved every bite! I added more spice and garlic, used Italian meatballs instead of sausage and used 1 red, yellow and orange pepper instead of 3 green. It was delicious, we will make it again for sure!
This is new favorite in our house. I use one pound of hot italian chicken sausage and about a half a pack of turkey pepperoni. I also use tortellini instead of the elbow macaroni to make it a little more filling. Everyone just raves when I make this!
So good! It did need a little extra water, but that was an easy fix. I didn't have Italian sausage, so I used the andouie we had in the house. So Spicy and tasty. I did add a little cayenne pepper just to up the spicyness. My husband gobbled it up, and we even had enough for lunches the next day. Thanks Tammie!!
