    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    One of the best soups you will ever have! To save time cook the sausage, onion and garlic hours ahead or even a day ahead and refrigerate. If serving more than 4 people, I suggest to double the complete recipe.

      This is a wonderful start to a soup, but I found it to be WAY too thick! I added 8 cups more liquid in the form of half n half and milk. The consistency was fabulous! Smooth as silk. I used Johnsonville bulk Italian sausage. I also added chopped dried chives. My family loved this soup, even the four year old!

      DH says 'very good'. I say excellent. Easy to prepare if you read the directions first, a great hearty flavor, and we only had about 1/2 serving each so the calories weren't THAT bad.

      This is a delicious soup! Everyone enjoyed this soup and I will make it again. I did cut down on the sausage and potatoes to reduce the calories. There was certainly more than 4 servings for us. It is a winner!
