It was delicious I didn’t use hot sausage but mild. I also added canned white beans and canned pinto beans to the soups. We also had French bread
delicious. whole family enjoyed it. the cooking process isn't too pleasing to the eye. but taste is really good.

Wonderful! We've made it 2x and is definitely one of my favorite soups. I've been using Italian seasoning, but will give fresh herbs a try, next time.

Quick and easy meal to make. My family enjoyed it. Next time I'll double up so we can have leftovers.

This was so delicious and easy to make! I did everything exactly as it said except I used already minced garlic instead of fresh cloves.

Best soup!!!! Made it with 2 cans of 14.5 ounces each fire-roasted tomatoes. The broth this soup makes is out of this world. Will be making again and again this winter.
