"Awesome flavors with all my favorite ingredients. This came from the Hillshirefarm.com website, and it fills the bill as a wonderful comfort food, especially on cool days. Enjoy!"

"My favorite style of recipe, one that I can play with! I added 2 huge, panfried (leftover) chicken breasts, cut into cubes, 4 small fresh sweet peppers, chicken broth, a can of italian stewed tomatoes, tomato juice (it was in the fridge, what's a girl to do?) and a teaspoon of minced garlic from the jar. Sweated the onion with the keilbasa and deglazed the pan with with a split (glass) of brut champagne. Tossed everything in the crock pot for about 3 hours. Just enough broth to almost cover. Awesome... I have a very happy roommate."
"This soup was quick and easy to put together. I was looking for something flavorful and quick to warm us up since our temps have gotten very chilly in the past few days. I gave my hubby a sample to check the seasoning and he said it was very tasty. I used what I had on hand, so the only changes were crushed tomatoes instead of chopped and a combo of a mild and a hot link smoked sausage. Just what I was looking for;))) Thanks for sharing this one Shelly S.!!!"
"Thoroughly enjoyed this recipe. I was amazed at how flavorful it was considering the relatively few ingredients. Thanks for sharing this, I will absolutely be making this again in the future. Highly recommend it."
"This soup was so EASY and very good too. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I added a little garlic powder and Italian seasoning, but other than that followed the recipe!"
"I wanted a soup that was quick, tasty, and lower-carb so used this as a guide. Threw together some sliced and browned smoked sausage (didn't bother to drain the little bit of fat), a sprinkle of onion powder, a can of diced tomatoes, a can of white kidney beans (not drained), and some chicken broth. Brought it to a boil and let it cook for just a few minutes to heat through. Served it with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top. Nothing fancy or scientific (no measurements), but it worked for me! Now I need to drink lots of water to dilute all that sodium! Come to think of it, maybe that's why it was so tasty to me -- I usually eat low-sodium!"
"enjoyed it. I doubled the amount of beans and also added a can of corn."
"This was great on a cold winter's night. No changes but next time I make it I think I'll try a different bean. Thanks!"
"The way the recipe is I give it 3 stars only....1 cup of noodles is wayyyyyyy too much, I used a half cup of elbows. Now I made it according to the recipe and something was throwing me off on the taste and I figured it out that it was the kidney beans. It is so "chili" to me when using kidney beans. And I don't know why this is called "Italian" bean soup as there was nothing Italian about it. So as it was cooking I LIGHTLY added garlic powder, basil, chili powder and red pepper. And ooooo was it delicious. I give it 5 stars the way I made it. So thank you for this recipe. With my additions, it totally rocked."
"This soup was unbelievable good. I read the reviews and agreed to add a few ingredients. I added garlic, Italian seasoning, jalapeno's, and most importantly I used fresh Johnson's sausage. There were no left-overs. With the cold weather upon us, this soup will keep you warm and your tummy happy! Thank you for sharing."
"I make this regularly and my family absolutely loves it. We finish the pot every time!"
"This soup was wonderful. I was worried it would be bland, with so few ingredients, but it was perfect. We used crusty bread to soak up the broth. So good."
"Delicous quick and easy for an after work meal. Thanks."
"It was raining cats and dogs here last night, and this soup was the perfect meal for the weather. I used gluten free macaroni noodles and Hillshire Farm's turkey smoked sausage with excellent results. Thank you very much for posting!"
"This soup comes together very quickly. We liked how it was flavorful but not overly spiced. I served it with Recipe #267178 and it was a perfect cold weather meal that took only about 30 minutes to pull together. Great comfort food!"
"I would give this more than 5*'s if I could! I saw Marg's photo and had to try this. I prepared exactly as directed, only my can of kidney beans was only 15 ounces. This is delicious and so hearty flavored. We are having cool weather for a few days. This is one of those recipes where you hope your family doesn't like it so you can have it all to yourself. No worry, it is so easy to prepare you can whip up another pot in no time at all. Thanks ShellyS!"
