Followed the recipe note for note and liked the result. I might have over seasoned with pepper a bit because they Soup did have a bit of heat to it. Like others I will try mild sausage next time and will see how that strikes me. Either way this is a good soup and worth tinkering with.

This soup was okay but missing something. One reviewer suggested maybe it was because she used mild sausage but I used fresh homemade hot italian sausage and it was still missing something.

It was ok, but like one reviewer said, it seemed to need something else. I followed the recipe exactly, except for substituting cream for the milk. I also only had mild sausages, because we don't like the hot stuff. Perhaps the spicy sausage is the "oomph" that I missed? Still, it is an easy and relatively quick soup.
