MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 14, 2014

"Needing more flavor, I added onion & garlic powder plus marjoram. I used beef broth instead of water & an immersion blender for the diced tomatoes as DH fussy about tomato pieces. He didn't complain, so it must taste okay. Being a vegetarian I can't eat it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 8, 2013

"This is an easy soup to put together. I was not thrilled with the turkey sausage and might try another brand or switch to pork sausage. I thought it was heavy on the kidney beans so I might switch a kidney bean for a navy bean. All in all, an easy soup without a lot of strange ingredients that make a trip to the store necessary."

"Good. I added mushrooms in, and used a pork sausage because that's what I had. I thought it was good; and my mother-in-law loved it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2013

"This is a basic soup that was easy to make. I think it needs more flavor. I'd add more vegetables (maybe carrots, spinach, green beans) and more seasonings/herbs."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 19, 2013

"I love recipes like this. Fresh ingredients along with simple, easy canned goods as well. This recipe was easy to put together. I ended up adding the potatoes at the beginning and browning them up. Then when the meat was done, I through the rest of the ingredients together so the flavors would meld. Would make this again."
