    Kale or Swiss chard may be used in place of the spinach. This can be made as spicy or as mild as you wish by using hot or mild sausage and more or less pepper flakes.

      I love this recipe. I add some small pieces of cauliflower in lieu of the potatoes that you would have at Olive Garden. I also use spicy italian turkey sausage and fat free half and half in order to reduce the fat. I also add some bacon bits to the soup, to add flavor.

      Great soup. I also added the cubed potatoes. Just to cut down on the fat a bit I used 2% milk. To add to the texture I also used about 1 full tablespoon of flour.

      Excellent, filling soup! I altered the recipe a bit by added cubed potatoes to make it a bit more hearty.
