MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 13, 2014

Made some minor changes...used Italian turkey sausage (sweet), beans instead of zucchini because I had fresh green beans on hand. I did not add salt, but did add a dash of Tabasco to add a little zip. The soup was a big hit...will make it often!

Been making this recipe for about 10 years and it the most delicious soup. Whenever I make it for anyone they always exclaim about how good it is. I make it just as the recipe says but add a bit more cabbage as it cooks up and can hardly be seen. Also I add more garlic.

I haven't made this soup-sounds great but no nutrition information. I usually don't make any recipes unless I know the nutrient content. Possible to add nutrition information to all your recipes? Thanks

I have been making this soup since it was originally published, and have at least one container in the freezer at all times for quick suppers. I often add an extra can of beef broth and a pint size container of home frozen tomatoes and 2 cans of beans. Change ingredients to match your tastes. This soup is so delicious and a never fail to please meal.
