What a wonderful recipe! This soup has been bubbling away all day in the crockpot, and the freezer is now well-stashed with soups for when autumn strikes! I had great fun making this, throwing in extra ingredients to my heart's content which, for me, is one of the great joys of soup-making. Just had to add garlic (4 cloves minced) and 2 leeks (sliced) and an extra onion: I love the wonderful blend of flavours of those three together. Just had to add some rosemary, thyme and sage to the oregano. And just had to double the mushrooms. I used my Vegetable Stock instead of the beef stock and Aldi's Italian tomatoes which, because they have less juice than any other brand I know, enabled me to include a generous cup of merlot. The sausages made this into such a satisfying and hearty meal. :) All the flavours blended beautifully and it tasted superb. Thank you Jenn - and thank you, Linda, for sharing this recipe on Zaar.
