Flavor was great for this soup, even when leaving the sausage out. It was a very hearty soup but I added water to it because there wasn't much liquid in it.
5 stars!! make this a lot..
This is by far my favorite soup. I serve it with pop up rolls and no leftovers are ever to be had.
I would add less salt next time.
I didn't have any green peppers, either, so I didn't use them. I added some lentils like the minestrone at the restaurant, so I needed more liquid and added 2 cans of condensed beef broth. This is very delicious!
