I made this recipe exactly as written. This is a very good, satisfying soup. Its not fancy, but very substantial and perfect for a Sunday night family supper. What I like about this soup is that one can taste all the different ingredients....the flavors are very clear and distinct and not muddled. Oh, the leftover soup was even better, too.

My husband loved this! The leftovers were even better! I also used two cans of tomatoes instead of one and served with garlic bread! Great recipe!

This soup is sooooo delicious. My husband raves about it and he doesn't even like spinach! This soup has changed his mind. Great recipe. I love to serve it with sourdough rolls and don't skimp on the Parmesan! I like to add a couple chopped carrots to the recipe. I have the recipe in TOH'S Big Book of Soup and it does call for 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) of diced tomatoes.

This was really nummy! I totally forgot to thaw my chicken, so by the time I went to make it is was too late. I added some macaroni to the soup to beef it up in place of the chicken. still good!

This is wonderful for all you carb watchers, just reduce the beans to 1 can.I have been making this recipe for years. It has been enjoyed by family and guests and is always a hit. I have found a shortcut for the chicken and suasage prep. I put them together in a 9/13 dish covered with foil and bake at 375 for about 1 hour (a little longer if frozen). I will alternate my bean selection according to what I have in my pantry and sometime use Tyrkey sausage for an even healthier option.

So hearty and delicious. I did it the lazy way- started the sausage, when it was just about done we added the chicken, onions and garlic. We didn't drain it at all. We also made this in huge quantities- 25 quarts. It was delicious

I love this soup. I first had it at my Mom's at least a year ago and only tried it myself last month when I found the recipe here. I used itallian turkey sausage to cut down on the fat and it was great. I also used a 28ounce can of diced tomatoes instead of 14 1/2. Tonight I served it to a group of friends and eveyone enjoyed it. This is my new favorite soup!
