This soup is delicious! I plan on making it again!
I'm a first time subscriber. This fairly simple recipe appealed to me, but I already knew I wanted shrimp in whatever recipe I chose. Since I enjoy a hearty soup, I added an extra can of northern beans, 5 oz. of fresh washed spinach and a pound of large cooked shrimp. I added the shrimp during the last couple minutes as they are already cooked. We thought the chicken was a bit mushy and bland. In the future, I'd lightly brown the chicken in 2 tbs olive oil, fresh garlic and herbs. I would also lightly brown the sausage. My wife and I agreed that fewer than 3 cans of northern beans would be insufficient. There was still an ample amount of broth in our bowls. We both agreed that the broth was very delicious.
This hearty soup has a nice blend of Italian flavors. However, I personally will leave out the bacon next time. I like my bacon crisp & it turned out soggy from cooking in the soup.
easy and both husband and 3 yr old loved it
Followed recipe 1st time and found it to be very good, but a tiny bit too garlicy. Next time used half as much garlic and a few drops of Tabasco, and replaced the chicken with frozen shrimp. Now, that's good! Even my picky granddaughter loved it.
Savory is a seasoning McCormick sales it when you dont know what it is you can aways google it.
I had to cut the recipe in half - there are only two of us - but we loved it! Great with a salad and nice, crusty bread. We'll definitely have this again.
What is Savory? I would like to make this soup but I don't know what savory is.
