My husband enjoys my version of this dish so much, he doesn't order it at restaurants anymore. With fresh spinach, pasta and seasoned sausage, this fast-to-fix soup eats like a meal. —Brenda Thomas, Springfield, Missouri
Whenever Luci Knepper of Salem, Ohio takes this colorful salad to a ladies luncheon, she gets compliments. "Even my son loves this...and he doesn't care for either cheese or sour cream. The apples add interest and a little crunch...and you can easily substitute cooked chicken for the turkey," she suggests.
“My husband is not a soup-for-dinner kind of guy, but he loves this chunky, stick-to-your-ribs soup,” laughs Nancy Tafoya in Fort Collins, Colorado. “I always serve it with a warm loaf of homemade bread.”

One of my childhood friends moved to Italy 20 years ago. During a recent visit to see her, I enjoyed a scrumptious salad made with tortellini and fresh vegetables. I fell in love with the dish and have been trying to recreate ever since. How'd I do? —Kelly Mapes, Fort Collins, Colorado
“I like making this cool potato recipe on warm days. I reduced the oil quite a bit and added a little more honey mustard, giving it a richer taste. Sausage, too, adds good flavor to this hearty salad!”
