Bake up some Manchego cheese toasts and uncork a bottle of Ribera del Duero to enjoy alongside this healthy pot of soup. Both sweet and hot Italian sausage work well.

The whole family enjoyed this simple dish. I made it with a whole bok choy instead of Brussels sprouts. Added the bok choy after the potato slices were almost done. I could see doing it with Swiss chard too. Yum. Read More

Made this soup with fresh polish kielbasa in lieu of Italian sausage since we don t like fennel. The soup was good but I believe using sliced smoked sausage would make it even better. Read More

Good but not Great! My butcher sells site made chicken chorizo that is awesome which I used in place of the Americanized Italian sausage. As the chorizo is full of paprika I added cilantro and tumeric. The soup achieved Greatness!!!!! Served with blistered flour tortillas and a nice Spanish Red!! Perfect for this SoCal rainy season!! Thanx for sharing!raf CalvinD49 where do you find fresh Kielbasa?? When living in Pa. my in-laws (now out-laws) made it. I can not find it in Ca. Yes it would be wonderful in this soup!raf Read More

This was very tasty. I used 2 sweet sausage and 1 hot sausage. I also used a whole cup on the carrot and celery as well as the onion. I don't care for too much smoked paprika so I used 1 tsp. sweet and 1 tsp. smoked. I think this would taste better if it sat for a day to meld flavors. Read More
