      The Bavarian version I used to eat regularly was not thickened and used pieces of roast beef (leftovers?) in lieu of the sausage. It tastes SO much better than it sounds.

      This was a good dish, but more og a ragout consistency than a soup. It would probably be good served over spaztle(german noodles)or rice. I did add some fresh garlic to this recipe though.

      Absolutely incredible! I am in LOVE with this soup! I used farm fresh beans that I boiled in a very light chicken broth. Add the ywllow potatoes diced VERY small, and at the end I did add Kielbasa. What a fresh flavored hearty meal I was treated to! This has everything you could ask for: fresh flavor, ease of preparation, fresh ingredients, and happy diners!
