MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2014

"Fantastic! Easy! Delicious! I doubled the water, broth, and whipping cream. I used gnocchi instead of potatoes."

MY REVIEW

"The flavor of this soup is delicious and then some. My only regret is that I did not double the recipe. This may become our favorite soup."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 11, 2014

"I have been making my own version of this soup for about 8 years now. You can't go wrong with this combination of main ingredients. It is my husband's favorite soup and he requests it all the time. A good way to get the men to eat soup. And yes, I played around trying to duplicate that 'Italian restaurant' favorite also. I do not use any milk at all as the potatoes will add some starchy consistency. You can also slice the potatoes, like the restaurant version. I buy the ground sausage instead of links and just cook on stove top in the soup pot...less dishes to wash. There are never leftovers to freeze in my house!"

"Looks exactly like the picture and it tastes amazing! I used a little whole milk instead of the heavy cream. And my 18 year old daughter loves it! I would definitely recommend this recipe!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 15, 2013

"My husband loves to eat this soup at a very well known italian resteraunt, so when I found that I could make it at home, I jumped at the chance! I made this in my crockpot and let it cook on low all day for about 8 hours and then I added the kale and let it sit on the "keep warm" setting until we were ready eat dinner a couple of hours later. It worked beautifully! My husband remarked that this recipe was more flavorful and heartier then the soup he loves at the italian resteraunt! I plan on making this again soon and freezing the left overs of this current batch for another day. (Field Editor)"
