    Simple and good...not crazy about using seasoning packets but it really gave the soup a good flavor...garnished the soup with freshly grated Parm.

    I tweaked this recipe by adding sauteed onion, garlic, and bacon. I also added some hot pepper flakes, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. At the very end, I put in about two cups of light cream. I had many compliments on this dish. It ended up tasting like an improved version of a certain chain restaurant's Italian sausage soup. I would definitely make it again.

    Very yummy...like another review suggested, I thickened with cornstarch at the end. My husband said it tasted like a soup at "Olive Garden" Easy, quick, & healthy.

    I left out the italian seasoning and added 1/2 c. of heavy cream and 1/2 t. of red pepper falkes. If you want the broth thicker, just add one T. cornstarch mixed with cold water at the last.
