Extremely salty (1700+ mg of sodium!) and somewhat oily, even though I left out the added salt and used 1 tablespoon olive oil. Next time I'll brown and drain the sausage first, use less ham and chicken broth, and add more water.
We make this soup all the time! I bring it to pot lucks some times and have gotten the reputation of being "Making Really Good Soups". I don't put as much red pepper and I've never done it with ham. It still turns out good!
Wonderful soup that is even better the next day! I used bulk "plain" sausage as Italian spiced wasn't available, and I added hot sauce to taste. Would like to try this with ground turkey to decrease the fat content. My husband and I love this soup!
The flavor of this was good, but we found it very salty. Will make this again but will leave out the added salt.
Excellent recipe! I love this soup. I always get it when I go to Carrabba's. I made it just like the recipe and it come out great. It tasted just like Carrabba's. My Boyfriend loved it.
Excellent...even if I cheated a bit. I used canned; already cooked lentils (3 cans) and used 8 cups chicken broth and just 4 cups water. My version didn't turn out as thick, but it still tasted fantastic! It was delicious...a new favorite fall soup!
So good! My boyfriend's reaction was "Why do we ever go out to eat?" I served it with crostini grilled cheese sandwiches which I'm submitting recipe for.
My husband and I loved this dish! It's easy to make and even though the prep time can be a little lengthy (mincing, grating, dicing) it's completely worth the effort. What's great about this recipe is that there are so many elements you can slightly alter to your taste and it's still excellent. I used spicy Adouille sausage and added cilantro as a garnish. This recipe also reheats really well so it%u2019s just as good the second time around!!! Thanks for cloning!!!
Wonderful dish and very easy to do. I used homemade sausage and red lentils. It was not oily at all. Made just as directed and everyone loved it. Thanks for a great recipe!
