I made this last night - WONDERFUL FLAVORS. I added ~1 teaspoon of oregano, other than that, no changes to the soup. I served it over red & brown rice. It was spicy and delicious. Thanks for the recipe Culinary Inspiration, another KEEPER for us! DH raved about it. UPDATE -- NOVEMBER 14, 2008: I made this again, but did not have any meat to add to it, so I used ~1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes, and the flavor was very similar to when I made it with the hot italian sausage. So this can be made as a vegetarian dish as well, subbing the chicken broth with vegetable broth. WONDERFUL RECIPE
