We love this soup -- I use this recipe as a base and add tons of fresh chopped basil, lots of garlic, chopped spinach, and fennel seeds to this recipe. I also add fresh chopped eggplant if in season. Serve with a warm crusty bread and grated parmesan on top. Oh Mama Mia -- it's good.

SIx Stars, I am on a diet, but had to have two bowls, and could have tried three!

Excellent blend of veggie's and sausage. I think it needed a little hot spice, so added about 1 tsp. crushed red peppers. Also, subed my fresh frozen cannellini and kidney beans from last summer harvest. I think my frozen veggies lacked the gravy flavor that comes from canned. Just my 2cents worth. Very good one Lainey, tagged in the newest forum.
