This recipe came out so good. I need to put the leftovers in the refrigerat right now so I don't eat the whole pot. It is more of a stew but I couldn't be more pleased with the taste.

Great soup, comes together quickly. It is very thick, so I added some chicken stock. The seasoning is timid, but adding just a little more salt and pepper was sufficient to liven it up. Highly recommend.

This is one of my family's favorites. Ham works fine too. Sometimes I use fresh rosemary instead of thyme. And yes it does turn out pretty thick.

This soup was sooo good. I didn't have any green beans, so I used about a cup of frozen peas-and-carrots. I also had about a half-dozen frozen shrimp that I tossed in with the beans. Added a sprinkle of garlic and hot-pepper-sauce. Wow, excellent.

Yummy-Yummy... but mine came out more like a stew (thick) than a soup. Not sure what I did wrong but still delicious. Thanks

I have been making this soup for years. It's perfect for a winter meal. My husband requests this all the time.

This is pretty good soup. My husband and I both like it and I will make it again.

What a great recipe! I did change it a bit, replacing the sausage with ham and then used butter instead of the sausage drippings to cook the celery and onions. I also thought a little black pepper gave it a bit of zip. I've printed out a second copy to send to my mom...good stuff.
