"Made exactly as written except I added 1/2 tsp. Cajun seasoning to increase the Cajun flavor. This soup Is outstanding, plus healthy and colorful. I cut up the veggies and put into baggies beforehand, then when I'm ready to make the soup it's easy and fast to throw together. Will definitely make this often."

"This was delicious and well received by my family. I enjoyed leftovers the next day for lunch. It was just hard to peel and cut up the sweet potatoes."

"I made this soup a couple of days ago and we really enjoyed it. I agree that it is better the second day, but it was really delicious the first time around too. I couldn't decide which flavor of chicken sausage to use, so I ended up using a garlic herb variety of the Al Fresco brand."
