In New England we frequently have cool fall evenings that call for a dinner that warms you all over. This chowder does that. I must admit I don't care too much for the taste of broccoli, but I really like this chowder.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 23, 2011

This is an awsome soup. I have been making it for years and every time I make it for company somebody askes me for the recipe. However I do not use all half and half. I use one quart of whole milk and one quart of half and half because it gets to be a bit much. Cook it up, you'll love it. Chicago.

Fantastic! For my family, I doubled the sausage and the tortellini....it was wonderful, one of the best recipes I've made in a long time :)

This soup is absolutely tasty. I followed the directions and found that maybe next time, I will decrease the half and half by 1/2 since I like a little thicker soup. Very good!!
