A classic Tuscan soup has lots of potatoes, but I make mine the low-carb way with cauliflower. Turns out, it has a heartier flavor. —Heather Bewley, Bemidji, MN

"Overall, this soup was pretty good. I liked the use of sausage and cauliflower. I wasn't a fan of the mushrooms but I'm really not in general. Next time, I think I'll add in some tomatoes and extra seasonings."

"3.5 stars. This recipe seemed like it was missing something. I even added parsley, sauteed onions, and some roasted garlic. I used half and half. My husband and I thought it was good, but not great. I am hoping it is one of those dishes that tastes better the next day."

"Very good. I added a heaping spoonful of Better than Bouillon for some extra flavor, but my husband and I really enjoyed it."

"This soup had good flavor and was easy to make. I substituted fat free half and half for the heavy cream and added fresh parsley for color at the very end. Next time I make it I will use turkey sausage in place of regular sausage."
