I love this recipe, and have made it several times with variations. I used smoked chicken sausage and some boneless breast of chicken, and used a tsp each of fresh oregano, rosemary, and thyme. I cut the cayenne to 1/8 tsp since my hubby is sensitive to hot foods.
Love this- filling and healthy. For convenience, I use Italian seasoning (dried) and a bay leaf instead of the suggested herbs. I used turkey sausage the last time I made this and it still tasted great!
This was delicious! The whole house smelled incredible while it was cooking and it tasted every bit as good as it smelled. There was a good balance of textures and of flavors. We used a chicken italian sausage. Can't wait to have it again for lunch tomorrow.
This recipe was amazing. Being that I am from wi I used brats instead of the italian sausage and also used fresh baby spinach (removed stems) instead of the greens. I chose this recipe over many others due to the fact that the ingredients are basic, nothing fancy. The results were amazing.
This soup turned out so good! Savory, filling, and delicious - it was just what I was craving. I ended up using regular canned diced tomatoes instead of stewed. . I didn't want them pre-flavored, which is how stewed tomatoes are prepared. I also had to add another cup to 2 cups of water as the soup gets very thick. Some people like that - I happen to like a good balance of broth, veg, and meat. Sprinkled some pecorino on today's lunch portion. Out of this world yummy!
Wow! Probably the best soup I've made so far (in my amateur experimentation). I recommend red kale and Johnsonville Mild Italian Sausage. The kale stays slightly crunchy and pairs perfectly with the slight sweetness of the sausage. I also used tomatoes that had been stewed in basil and oregano. Fabulous! I wish I had doubled the batch.
