MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 21, 2013

"An easy and flavorful soup that really hits the spot. Instead of the white kidney or cannellini beans suggested, I substituted navy beans (the most similar bean that I had on hand). I really enjoyed the flavor and next time I think I will use bulk turkey sausage instead of ground turkey, similar to what hchambers did, because I think that will just really enhance the flavor."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2013

"This was delicious. I did not add the fennel and reduced the turkey to 1/2lb and added a 1/2lb of ground sausage to the soup as well as some zucchini. This is a versatile recipe and can be adjusted to your family's tastes."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 18, 2013

"This is a very flavorful soup and quite versatile. I did not add the fennel and used Italian seasoning as opposed to the individual spices. I also reduced the turkey to 1/2lb and used 1/2lb of ground sausage which was very tasty. This is a great recipe that can easily be adjusted to your family's tastes."

"This has been a family favorite for over 8 yrs. It's wonderful in the crockpot, and freezes well, too! What a tasty meal to walk in and smell on a cold winter evening!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 12, 2011

"Dinner is especially challenging after working all day and coming home to hungry kids and husband. This soup was so easy to throw together and the best part was that the ingredients are mostly pantry items I had on hand. It was hearty, flavorful and delicious. Seal of approval from my hungry troops! Another bonus is I now have a new ground turkey recipe to add to my repertoire as I am trying to use less red meat and more lean protein."
