This is one delicious soup! A wonderful hearty soup that doesn't need anything to accompany it unless you want some crusty bread.I didn't have turnips either, but wouldn't have had room for them. : ) Added more broth to be sure the pasta didn't stick to the pan. This make a large batch, but that means more leftovers and you can freeze it as well. Made for PRMR, April, 2014.
No turnips around here but everything else went into the pot, lol. This is very thick and if you really want a soup plan to add more liquid. That said, this is purely yummy comfort food that smells every as good as it tastes. It's also a real tummy filler and I found that a small bowl was enough for me with a side salad. I also need to say that I made 1 qt and used couple of small veggie sausage patties (I love these veggie sausages!). Once again, delicious!
Mine became more stew than soup but was the most delicious meal. There are leftovers that I will add more stock to, so I can have the full Zuppa experience tomorrow. I used basil and tomatoes from the garden. This is such a versatile and family friendly meal and looks and smells so inviting that even the DD just recovering from having her wisdom teeth out sampled a tiny serve.
Outstanding soup! It is delicious and addictive and definitely warms the soul. I veered off from the directions a tad, but still stayed true to the recipe. I had hot Italian sausage, which gave it a nice spice. I browned the sausage with the onion and garlic, adding the basil, allspice, salt and pepper a little before it was done. Then I added the broth, using napa cabbage and a can of fire-roasted diced tomatoes. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. This soup makes a LOT, but you will definitely want all of it. I was a little leery of the allspice but trusted the recipe and was pleasantly surprised. It added a great dimension to the flavor. Thanks for sharing this lovely soup that I'm so glad I discovered.
