"This recipe originally came from a book that's now lost somewhere... I've made a few adjustments for my personal taste. I don't usually like bell peppers all that much, but love this recipe -- hearty, quite healthy, and works wonderfully all year 'round! Find a local farmers' market for the freshest (and cheapest) bell peppers!"

"Ihave been making this soup for years, my sis turned me on to it. I love it and so does my family. It' awesome on a cool Fall day or winter.With a good loaf of Itailian bread, yummmm. I also put in plum tomatos."
"Excellnet recipe. This is one of those recipes that makes you look like you spent a lot of time preparing, but in reality it's quite easy to make. You'll impress your friends and relatives, and it tastes fantastic!!"
"LOVE this recipe...I switch different kinds of Italian sausages...always delicious"
"I had never had this soup before and it was awesome! I did make some adjustments that require more time , but if you have the time I recommend you try them. I suggest you cook the sausage ( I used hot Italian ) in a shallow pan with a little water ( about a quarter inch) covered on low for about an hour flipping once. This will best preserve the sausages flavor and the skin will not get crispy so there is no need to remove it. I roasted the peppers and removed the skin before chopping which added a wonderful smokey flavor. I also suggest sautéing the onions and garlic before you add the liquid to bring out their flavor- add pepper flakes at this time if you like more heat. I used a stock I made from a chicken I had roasted with Italian herbs and garlic. I'm not sure how much these things effected the outcome but the overall results were truly delicious!"
"Lovely. I did not take the casings off, they were very fine, and the sausage turned out great in the soup. I followed someone's review and added Italian canned tomatoes, I think it was a good tip."
"Wonderful recipe for a cold icy day in Alaska! Served with crusty Italian Bread. I used little bow tie pasta, which was what I had on hand. The Sausage and red and green bell peppers came from our freezer. Could not have asked for a more wonderful warming dinner."
"Yummy,quick and easy. Thanks"
"Excellent soup ! I made up a batch last night for dinner....yes...we ate late....but it was worth the wait.. I added a few drops of hot sauce to kick up the soup a bit and it was wonderful.....had it with a crusty roll for dinner. I'm looking forward to having it again tonight for a quick meal and I know that it will be even better tonight ! YUMMY !!"
"This was so good that I made it twice this week!! The first time with sausage as directed, the second time with hamburger. Thanks for sharing."
"Awesome, awesome flavor!! "
