Wonderful. Followed the recipe as written, except we used mild italian sausage and low sodium broth. Loved it. Definitely will make again, routinely.
I thought this was very delicious as is but I am a fatty and I wanted to give it a little extra. I stirred in about 3/4 cups of heavy whipping cream during the last 30 mins and it was amazing. I ate it with some baked bread with butter and cheese. I will be making this again.
After tasting this soup at a friends birthday party I was so glad she said it was at Taste of a home. We make it at least once a month and my three kids 7 and under (and husband) all enjoy it too. We use mild Italian sausage, leave out the salt, and I sometimes cook it on the stove, but it always tastes great!
Got this recipe from taste of home magazine several years ago. Love it!
This is my second time making this soup! It's delicious and huge hit at our house!!! Bonus points for being easy and simple to make!
Love this soup, and so easy! I made it pretty much as the recipe calls for with some adjustments for ingredients on hand. I used chorizo instead of Italian sausage, spinach for half the kale, upped the spice to 1T Italian mixed seasoning and used only one can of beans. Delicious! Beautiful deep red color.
Good but not a favorite.
Very tasty and hearty soup. To cut down on the spicy zip of hot sausage, I use sweet Italian sausage. And I increased the spices a little: 3 Tbsp minced garlic, 2 tsp oregano, 2 tsp salt, 3/4 tsp black pepper, and 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. I also added about 1 Cup water to the chicken broth and crushed tomato base. The soup was perfect to serve to my father during his chemotherapy. They asked for the recipe! Thick with vegetables, and a yummy broth.
I made a double batch due to the number of people at our table for dinner. I enjoyed this soup. I can't say it was a hit with the family. Some of the kids weren't overly excited with the kale in it. We ended up freezing a third of it. I'm still giving it a higher rating because it is good recipe. Just noting it wasn't a favorite for the kids so when I make it again, I don't double the recipe. :)
Made this tonight in our pressure cooker and we loved it!! I added a can of sliced tomatoes, drained. Only because we love tomatoes. I also used cannellini beans since we had them on hand. Will definitely make this again!
