MY REVIEW

"I have made this soup a few times and the family loves it. A snowy day in Georgia and had to throw this soup in the crockpot. I used an Italian chicken sausage and added turkey pepperoni. I also added a red pepper and a little dried oregano."

MY REVIEW

"I can see why this won a contest. It's been one of my favorite cold-weather meals since I found it in September. I misread the recipe and bought bulk chicken sausage (I got spicy Italian), so I browned it before making the recipe as written. Freezes like a charm."

"Tasty! Had Beef Kielbasa so used that & beef broth, also added the kale suggested below."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 24, 2014

"Good, rich flavors. I added a 1/2 tsp each of cumin, summer savory, and rosemary.

Beware: using double-smoked sausage can overwhelm the other flavors in the soup. A spiced, single smoked sausage would be better."
