Great for a cold night!

Top Review by Lorac

Well this was just perfect for a cold September night in Phoenix. We had a cold spell and the temperature dropped below 70°F!!! We loved the spicy sausage, fresh rosemary and Romano cheese flavor. The only change I made was to use use 1 can of garbanzo beans for the puree and 1 can of pinto beans in the soup (I don't like the texture of whole chickpeas). I used Cavatappi macaroni and an extra clove of garlic. If your soup tastes this good in Sept, I can't wait for winter!!!
