"I saw this recipe some years back and tried it. It's simple, good and easy. I cook a lot, not afraid of a complicated recipe and I have to say that this is one of my favorite fall back soups recipes. Thanks for sharing it."

"We first tried this recipe a couple of years ago and it is a family favorite. Super easy and quick to make. Very flavorful and hearty. Having two strapping young men and a husband we often double the sausage to suite their appetites. Great for potlucks too but be ready to hand out the recipe."
