After a full day of teaching and coaching, I'm often too tired to spend a lot of time preparing dinner. So I rely on this thick, chunky blend that I can have on the table in 30 minutes. The whole family enjoys the wonderful flavor of the smoked sausage. -Jennifer LeFevre, Hesston, Kansas

"Somewhat plain, needs more flavor, but I am giving it a 4 as my daughter really liked the potatoes. I added extra cheese and some basil and garlic salt."

"For this recipe I used Country Sausage and I didn't have the celery or the cheddar cheese so I decided not to put the celery in it and as a substitute for the cheddar cheese I used white American and parmesan cheese mixed together and it turned out really good"

"I used regular smoked sausage since my family loves that type of sausage (Holmes brand), I added 2 diced up tomatoes to the soup, 4 long peeled and sliced carrots instead of the 1/4 cup , instead of the garlic and onion powder I added i diced onion and 1 tsp minced garlic, 1/2 tsp of pepper instead of the 1/4, 2 cups of 1% milk instead of whole, 6 cups of water, 2 tbsp of of chicken flavor seasoning for my broth, I cut down to 4 potatoes instead of 6. Let it boil until potatoes were cooked and then simmer for about 20 min or so to let the flavors come to life. This was so good. It reminds me of Olive Garden Zuppa Toscana soup. I will def be making this again and again and to pot lucks and get together s. Thanks so much for the recipe."

"Delicious! I always double this recipe, but not the amount of potatoes. I add 1 (14.75 oz.) can creamed corn to the soup when I add the milk and cheese.....I really like the creaminess it adds. I also use turkey kielbasa rather than regular kielbasa. This soup has become a favorite at our house."
