I love the hearty flavor of this soup and find it to be more balanced in flavor than many lentil based recipes (i.e. Not as strongly lentil flavored). Very filling and easy to make.

Love it. I use really healthy chicken Italian sausage

One of my favorites. I use Andouille sausage - less than the recipe calls for - and add a dash of red wine vinegar.

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.

For some reason, we just did not love this soup. It has wonderful ingredients in it. It just did not have a flavor that we preferred.

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!

Very good soup & fairly quick & easy. You could easily sub spinach for the kale. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese before serving!

Good one! I used reg beef sausages and it was great.

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.

This is an excellent soup. Made it just the way it was.

I used a combination of normal and spicy Italian sausage. Soooo good!!! Definitely need to do this one again

With spinach taste super, if using fresh spinach will have to add at the very last minute literally.
