This soup is very thick and creamy. Very good flavor that is different. At first looking at it I didn't think we would really like but it came out really good and everyone ate some!!! We enjoyed. Thanks
Hearty soup for a winter's night, that's for sure. We don't have Italian sausage here so I crumbled up some thawed meatballs and threw in some mushrooms as well with a great result for a mid week meal.
This was certainly a unique soup. I used turkey italian sausage, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It hit the spot on such a could day My husband added hot pepper flakes to his for some spice. Topped with shredded cheese and fritos instead of croutons.
