This was good. I'd make it again. I served it with a good rustic bread, rather than the rice. It's a keeper.
Excellent flavor! I didn't change a thing about this recipe except to switch a red pepper for the green one (Mark won't eat green peppers, the red one he won't notice!). This makes a very thick soup - almost like a chili stew. If you want it more souplike, you could add tomato juice or V8. This is a keeper as it was so easy to toss in the pot and spend all day outdoors in the garden. Thanks, Nurse Di!!
This is an excellent recipe and I am so glad that I stumbled upon this little gem! Thanks so much. This makes excellent leftovers!! I traded out the garbanzo for great northerns... and changed out the water for vegetable stock. Just fabulous!! Thanks :)
This soup smells great while cooking and is oh so tasty. I only made one change. I used ground venison for the ground beef, thanks to hubby's hunting skill. The game meat went well with the Italian sausage. I will make it again for a great winter warm-up meal. Thanks, NurseDi for sharing this delight!!
My husband liked this soup .. I do not like ground beef so I didn't try it .. he however asked me to make it again .. It is extremely thick, and I got 10 servings out of it .. I also rinsed the beef (cooked by itself) to get rid of most of the fat .. thanks!
This was a wonderful soup and smelled so good! I made it exactly as directed and the results were fantastic! DD & I ate ours over rice and I served rolls on the side. Will definitely be making this one a regular! Thanks NurseDi!
Wow! So easy and sooooo good! I could only find a 12 ounce package of Italian sausage, so I used it all, and it turned out fine. I served it with some fresh Italian bread instead of rice. Excellent flavor and so easy to put together and let it cook all day while we were working on winterizing things outside. It tasted great on the cool night we had yesterday. I got the approval to make this "anytime I want to." Thanks for another great recipe!
This was an excellent soup. It was more like a stew so I thinned it down with 2 cups beef broth and 1/2 cup dry white wine. I didn't use any rice because we wanted a 'soupy' soup and I added parmesen cheese instead of cheddar. It really was delicious.
