      Superb soup. I love that it is full of chunky vegetables and the Italian sausage imparts divine flavor (and smell). Also, the fresh basil at the end is a great touch. Goes perfectly with hot crusty bread. Thanks for sharing this one.

      This is awesome! I've made it a few times and I can't believe I hadn't reviewed it yet. This is a very forgiving recipe and you can add just about any vegetables you have on hand that need to be used. I add 4 cloves of garlic, about a teaspoon of italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and a cup or two of egg noodles. The first time I made it my husband said it was the best thing I ever made! I made it again last night and didn't have enough sausage so I added a pound of ground chicken...still great! Thanks!

      Very, VERY satisfying soup. I made it exactly as written, EXCEPT: I added a couple of handfulls of bow-tie pasta (which worked really well,) mixed Italian spices, about five cloves minced garlic, and SPICY Italian sausage. Even our delicate, "special" palate folks loved the extra kick. It made the soup more warming but not overbearing. I also adjusted the chicken broth (I make my own with RL Schreiber base) to accomodate our own sense of "balance." Good one, Sarah. It's a keeper.
