Sausage, Potato and Spinach Soup

A hearty, comforting soup that’s so easy and simple to make, loaded with tons of fiber and flavor! 329.5 calories.

A bowl of true comfort food on your dinner table in 30 min or less. That’s something I can live with all week.

And even though it’s a piping hot bowl of soup, I can have this all. year. long.

Although I definitely prefer having this during this time of year, especially in front of the fireplace. Not that I have one of those but a girl can dream.

Now this soup is packed with spicy Italian sausage, potatoes and hearty spinach – a complete meal in a single bowl.

The only downside of this recipe is that the leftovers were not enough. Next time I’ll just have to double the batch and load up on that side of crusty bread to go along with it!

I love that it has 329.5 calories I would probably splurge on one more piece of spinach and go for 330 🙂 You know I do NOT ever pay attention to calorie counts on anyone’s blog, ever. But for some reason I just noticed that. And I love your bit at the end about sausage and whipping cream. 🙂

This is a perfect hearty fall/winter soup!

Do you think I could make this in the crockpot? We are a family of gypsies haha (not actually gypsies) but live on the road basically. My crockpot is really the closest thing I have to a stockpot size…

Please understand that it is very difficult to give exact conversion information to translate a traditional stovetop recipe to the slow cooker method without further recipe testing. I recommend using your own judgement to convert this recipe to utilize a slow cooker.

Could i sub sweet Italian sausage for this recipe or do you think it would change the flavor of the soup too much? Just can’t handle any spice. Thank you 🙂

I used a whole pack of Johnsonville sweet Italian sausage and it came out good. I forgot to add cram and it was very good. A little spicey tho. Added xtra spinach and leftover Yukon and red potatoes diced. It’s a keeper

You can use a crock pot for this dish. Brown the sausage in a skillet and use a slotted spoon to transfer the sausage to the crockpot. Add the remaining ingredients. The only suggestion I’d make is to cook the soup, on High, without the lid. Otherwise the soup will get too watery.
Note: when I make this soup I always remove the cooked sausage from the skillet and drain on paper towels then add it back to the pot. Otherwise, you’ll have an orange oil slick on top of the soup as you’;re trying to serve it. I also use Kale instead of Spinach. This recipe is a version of an Italian soup called Zuppa Toscano.

Looks amazing Chungah! I never look at calories but that .5 made me laugh haha!

I love this soup it was my favorite at a local restaurant and once I learned to make it I couldnt stop. Love the flavor and I keep everything on hand to make this often.

Italian sausage is our FAV, and we just happened to buy a ton of it. I was just thinking about how I haven’t made a soup at ALL this fall…and this is making me need to change that ASAP. Pinned!

I was thinking I wouls substitute the sausage with turkey sausage.

Where do you get turkey sausage?

I can find it at my local grocery store in the sausage section.

My supper market has it in poultry section.
Can I make soup the night before? Thanks

I made it tonight with Shadybrook Farms Spicy Turkey Sausage and added white white (had a bit left in fridge I needed to use up). It was SO good. Even the kiddos loved it.

I substituted vegetarian sausage for the other, used veggie stock, and coconut milk. Even the carnivores lived it!

Ohh, here I go again to thaw out the sausage! Just happen to have everything needed on hand and will make this for dinner today. I can’t bring myself to count calories for every dish I make but using some good judgement on frequency works just fine. Looking forward to dinner tonight … if I can wait until then! Thank you for such great and ‘damndelicious’ recipes.

Very tasty and easy to put together! The only change I made was to eliminate the heavy cream-didn’t have any. Otherwise just delicious.

You can substitute Non-Fat Half and Half for the heavy cream! Can’t wait to make this soup – sounds wonderful.

Yummm! I’m one of those girls too, who can eat a pipping hot bowl of soup any day of the year 🙂

My wife is not a fan of spicy Italian sausage, but could go for the milder version. Of the many different types of sausage and ingredients available these days, which would you recommend to be a great sustitute? In turkey or chicken versions.

It really depends on your wife’s personal preference – but I would personally choose chicken over turkey!

I’m using bratwurst because that’s what i have on hand… son used the last of my Italian the other day. 🙁 I am pretty sure any sausage could substitute for your taste.

This one is a fall family favorite in my home, super easy and Damn Delicious :). One suggestion I’d like to offer…if you like making enough for leftovers…swap some kale for the spinach, it holds up better when re-heating!

Slurp – this is my kind of soup, quick, fresh, and easy. 🙂 The hubs will ask for more sausage in it.

Soup never fills me up but one with sausage, potato and spinach just might. Looks really good! Pinned!

Excerpt from conversation with my mom. Me: “I’m going to make soup!” My mom: “You get carried away with food pictures, does the recipe have a lot of review?” Me: “No. She posted it yesterday, but I trust her and that one recipe I made from her blog didn’t let me down!”

Just ate a bowl of this soup and it was delicious! Spicy & hearty! I added in a carrot, diced & some sliced mushrooms because I wanted more veggies. I also used 2 cans of low-sodium chicken broth and then did another 11oz of water. I didn’t add salt and thought the soup was still a bit salty (I assume from the sausage), but I think it will pair well with some baguette slices! Thank you Chungah!

Made this tonight and it was a huge hit! Love your site! Such fantastic recipes!!

I made this over the weekend and it was damn delicious! Not only was it great tasting it was super easy and fast to make. This one is going in the rotation! Thanks for the great recipe

This soup ROCKED! My husband loves sausage, spinach and potatoes so this was amazing for us. One thing I did was, instead of adding the spinach in the soup, I just put it in our bowls and then poured the soup super hot over top. That still cooked the spinach and wilted it once you stirred it up. I’ve had bad experiences with wilted spinach not keeping well. Not sure if that would have happened in this recipe or not. But DAMN GIRL! This was good.

I made this for my family tonight. It was a hit! I’m going to have to double it next time. 😉

Love this! Looks like the perfect thing for a cold night snuggled on the sofa!

Delicious! Made it last night with turkey sausage and family loved it. Thanks for recipe.

I made this tonight for an event. So yummy, easy and healthy. Everyone loved it.

I am really enjoying your recipes, they are fantastic!

Thank you for sharing your talents with us!

This reminds me of my favorite Olive Garden soup! They use kale… but I also love spinach- maybe even broccoli? Our local market makes a terrific chicken Italian sausage (can’t tell the difference!) so that would be another potential substitute, since I keep it in my freezer.

Love it! Keep’em coming…..

I made this delicious soup for dinner on a cold and drizzly night and it was hearty and rich enough to feed my hardworking husband who doesn’t think soup is a meal. We loved it and I only made a few minor tweaks. I used fat free half and half, I forgot the chicken broth, so I used water and a touch of bouillon. I added mushrooms in my sauteed sausage and onions. And I made kale chips in the oven while I was making cornbread to go with it and I floated the kale on top of the soup in addition to the wilted spinach. The whole think was delicious! and really rich and decadent. Will be made next time I have dinner guests for sure…

Is it a coincidence that every yummy recipe I find on Pinterest leads me to your website? After 25 years of cooking you have put the spark back in my meal planning! My family thanks you. 🙂

This was delicious. Made it with Chicken sausage, kale, and half and half as those were the ingredients I already had. Came out excellent. Whole family enjoyed even picky 3 year old.

As a man who often comes home hungry and has to make dinner to feed our family this recipe was great. It was easy, relatively quick, and from simple ingredients. I made this last night for my family and it was delicious. We served it with a hearty bread to soak up all that deliciousness. However, my wife and I both thought it could have used anther couple cups of spinach. There was just enough leftover for my wife and I to both take some to work for lunch today.

I made this the other night, using hot Italian sausage and it was awesome. I had garlic bread with it and tore some up and put in the soup, really awesome!! On the second night I heated some up and added parmesan cheese to my bowl along with some more bread, to die for!! Making this for my husband when he gets home Sunday!! This is the best soup and just gets better the next day,, Thank you for posting.

I am going to make sausage balls instead of crumbling it. I don’t like sausage but my husband does. Been making a lot of your recipes. Yum! Love the One Pot Andouille Sausage Skillet Pasta too!

Just made this for dinner it was fantastic. I did sub coconut milk for the heavy cream! Thank you for the great recipe.

I don’t have italian sausage, can I use chorizo (Mexican sausage) instead?

You can certainly try substituting chorizo but without further recipe testing, I cannot speak for how much this will change the overall taste/texture of the dish. It is always best to use the ingredients listed in the recipe to obtain the best results possible.

Going to make this tonight – looks yummy! Using kielbasa sausage instead. Our tummies can’t handle real spicy stuff (well mine can but I am the only one in this house who likes spicy/hot) 🙂

I made this the other night and it is delicious. Used regular cream in place of heavy cream and it worked out just fine. Both my husband and I love it.

can you switch out spinach for Kale?

I made this with vegetarian substitutions (veggie broth, Morning Star link sausage and 1% organic milk) and it was beyond wonderful. My husband, a devout vegetarian, me, I waiver; so it’s great to find a recipe that can be modified to make both of us happy. And yes, it did remind me of Olive Garden’s soup, but for us far healthier and less calories. PS- I went heavy on the spinach.

Can you use cream cheese instead of heavy cream?

Dana, I do not recommend using cream cheese as the consistency will be far too thick for this soup.

Wow. Just made this tonight, and it was a big hit. I used white potatoes instead of red, kale instead of spinach, and half and half for the cream. So much yum, and I didn’t have to deal with the annoying Olive Garden experience! Winning!

I made this several nights ago and it was delectable. The only alteration I made was doubling the spicy Italian sausage and, next time (while still doubling), I’ll be using half spicy and half mild; it had quite a kick to it. My husband can’t wait to bring the leftovers back out! Thanks so much for sharing such a delightful recipe. It was a breeze to make.

Little hot but,really good!!

I’m so glad you tried this! For a milder soup, you can always use mild Italian sausage and omit the red pepper flakes.

I’m not a big fan of potatoes (just a weird texture thing for me), so I added a cup of rice in place of the potatoes (no extra liquid). This is my second go-round – first time I made it just as the recipe says – it had a great flavor, but I wasn’t digging the potatoes. OMG it is to die for with rice! Even if you like potatoes, I highly recommend mixing it up every so often and using rice (because, trust me, you will be making this recipe over and over again). I was also trying the non-spicy version (mild Italian sausage, no red pepper flakes) and it is still very flavorful. I will be making this recipe next weekend when my entire family is together for the long Thanksgiving weekend (yes, it is that good i want to share it with my very food-creative family!) Also, I am intolerant to dairy, so I used coconut milk instead of heavy cream. If you are on the fence about trying this recipe, go for it! You won’t regret it!

This soup is amazing! I too (like a few of the other people who commented) used half and half instead of heavy cream. This will definitely be on the “comfort food”menu from here on out. Thanks for the recipe!

This recipe is amazing! So much flavor. I did use sausage with a casing because that was what was on sale and it is still great. I also tripled the recipe. 5 stars.

I used Italian turkey sausage and instead of heavy cream I stirred in a cup of nonfat Greek yogurt at the end. It was delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

I was thinking Greek yogurt too. Did you use the same 1/4 cup the recipe called for?

Greek yogurt sounds like a good idea. I used about 1/2 cup of coconut cream/milk. It worked out great.

This was amazing, my family loved it and my 14year old daughter helped me cook it:) I did use way more spinach (a whole bag) and milk instead of heavy cream because that is what I had. Will definitely make this again and I am looking forward to having some of the leftovers for lunch tomorrow.

Would it be terrible to omit the spinach altogether? I am not a fan of greens in soup. While not really a substitute, I was thinking of adding carrots in place of the spinach. Thoughts?

Gabby, that’s really up to you – if you are not a fan of spinach or greens in your soup, it may be best to omit altogether.

When choosing a type of onion for this soup, are you using yellow onions or white? Can’t wait to try this tonight!

Either will work great!

My husband and I made this tonight and it was soo good! Absolutely delicious! Definitely will be making it again. Thanks for sharing!

This is the most awesome soup. I made it exactly as you instructed and it came out perfectly. My new all-time favorite soup. Thank you.

Amazing! I added finely diced carrots and celery with the onions for a little mirepoix action. It’s worth splurging on the whipping cream, too.

We make this often in the winter months, sometimes I will use a smoked kielbasa type sausage just to change it up a bit and don’t feel like cooking the Italian sausage.

To make doubles can I double the amount of ingrediants?

Yes, that’s exactly right.

This was absolutely amazing! Thank you so much!

i just made this tonight, and it was amazing! It’s just my husband and I eating it though, so I was wondering: would this soup freeze well? If so I plan to store half of the leftovers in the freezer for another day. Thanks for the great recipe!

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! I recommend using your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

I can tell you that it freezes very well…at least the way I made it (I left out the cream because I thought it would work better as a brothy soup.

I made this tonight and used Italian flavored ground turkey. I omitted the cream and instead put some part skim mottzarella and parmasian cheese on top. It was as delicious as the Olive Garden and much more healthy.Yum!!

Another great recipe! Family loved it!

Last night was the third time I made this…. in a week and a half time span! Love it! It’s so easy and super delish. I used kale last night, didn’t have spinach. I’ve also made it with turkey instead, to try and make it “healthier” but what the heck I’m gonna just stick to the Italian sausage, it’s tastier for sure!
Thanks for this awesome recipe. It’s my first time on your site! Can’t wait to check out some more recipes.

Delicious recipe! Thank you so much. I’m going to make it again tonight but just realized I only have sweet potatoes. Think they will work?

Brie, I’m honestly not entirely sure – I worry that the sweetness from the potatoes may take away from the other flavors of the soup.

I have had it with sweet potatoes and kale, still delicious.

I made this recipe today and used half deer sausage and half Italian sausage. My family loved it. I got a

So I entered this soup into a soup contest today at work and I won first place! It was so delicious! Yay!

I gave my email address, got a confirmation and returned to the site for a recipe but all I am seeing is pictures of scrumptious looking foods with no recipes. What am I doing wrong?

Carol, I’m not entirely sure what you are doing wrong but there is a recipe for every post located at the bottom in a blue box.

Just had some of this soup which I had frozen. Still very good! I was afraid the potatoes would not freeze well but they were fine. SO good and satisfying on a cold NE day!

Could you use creame of chicken soup instead of creame and flour and put in crockpot?

Karen, please understand that it is very difficult to give exact conversion information to translate a traditional stovetop recipe to be used in a slow cooker without further recipe testing. However, here is an article worth checking out on a possible conversion guide:

Do you think jimmy dean sausage would work well in this soup?

I actually haven’t tried Jimmy Dean sausage before so I can’t really say for sure!

Jimmy Dean is breakfast sausage and would drastically change the flavor of the soup.

I made this last night and it was damn delicious!

My family loved it. I used smoked sausage because that is what I had and the smoked flavor was fantastic. I think you could do it with any kind of meat. It would be great with smoked chicken too.

husband approved. He finished two bowls. We added mushrooms. Yummy!

I am currently eating this as I type.. and at first i was iffy about it because I would never use sausage for soup. But omg this soup is so delicous! My husband loves thick and hardy soups and this one is the… I give it 5 stars. so far loving all the recipes I have tried from this website.

made this tonight for my husband and I who are 3 weeks into Whole 30. So glad to have something other than meat and veggies, I just had to switch out the cream for coconut milk. Thank you so much for sharing.

Great recipe for cold weather. We are in middle of a snow storm here in Colorado – just cleared the first 10″ away and more on the way!
So I just made a pot of this soup! It is delicious and warms you right through!
I substituted chicken sausage and used coconut cream instead of plain heavy cream — worked great and gave great depth to soup! Will definitely keep this one in my “go to” recipes!
My first recipe from your site – just discovered it today! Love your site!

I made this for lunch and used italian sausage, red pepper flakes and oregano and it is a bit spicy for us. We are used to spice. Now i have a big pot of it to use. What suggestion would you give to make it less spicy? My husband loves it, but it is a bit on the hot side for him too.. Thanks

For less spice, you can omit the red pepper flakes as needed.

Delicious!! I made this with Italian turkey sausage, half and half cream, extra spinach, only 1/8 tsp chili flakes and left out the salt. We loved it. Thank you for a great recipe!

Just made this soup and it is AMAZING.

Love this, . I used chicken italian sausage and also saute’ mushrooms till nice and brown thanks !

If I double this recipe, would a 6-qt. Dutch oven work well for this? Thank you.

A 6-qt Dutch oven may be too small as I have used a 3 1/2-qt Dutch oven for this recipe. A 7-qt Dutch oven may be more appropriate.

This looks amazing!! I do want to ask however, is there a (lower carb) substitute for the red potatoes that would work in this recipe? Thanks – can’t wait to try it! 🙂

You can try substituting cauliflower.

i just made this, and it is delicious! I found a lean hot itilian sausage cause I like it spicy. I also substituted delicious and healthy coconut milk. It adds a hint of coconut but that flavour is not overpowering. Yum yum! Thank you for the recipie.

Success! I doubled your recipe, served it today for some guests, and not a drop of soup was left. Everyone around the table gave me two thumbs up. Thank you again, it’s a keeper.

Great recipe! I used turkey sausage as I’m on a low red meat diet. I also added some broccoli and doubled the amount of cream to 1/2 cup. I’ve pinned it and will be making again for sure.

I featured you today on Blissful and Domestic! Check it out! 🙂

Yum, yum can’t wait to make this for dinner. Since I’m vegetarian, I will use Morning Star Crumblers and Tofurkey in place of the Italian sausage.

I was wondering if u could use kale instead of spinach? It’s what I have on hand…

Yes, kale would be a great substitute.

We absolutely loved this soup. The only thing I changed was to add grated Asiago chees on top. Served it with French bread and a salad.

The second day, it was even better.

I love your recipes and will not hesitate to try more.

Thank you so much.

Loved this soup based on smell before I even tasted it! Do you think it would hold up if it was made and then frozen?

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

I was looking for something filling to warm up my family while we wait out the -10 degree temps in Chicago so I gave this a try. Everyone LOVED it! I followed the directions as written and it turned out perfect. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe.

Looking forward to making this soup over the weekend but I think I want to use italian style turkey sausage and add some beans and carrots for some added health benefits 😉 what kind of beans do you think would be good in this?

Great northern beans would be a wonderful addition!

just made this soup. Very easy to make and delicious! Thanks for the recipe

I made this recipe yesterday! Absolutely delicious!! Here’s a few things I did differently though. This made a full dutch oven pan of soup:
1) I browned my onions with my sausage. After I drained my sausage and onions, i added my spices and mixed it all together. I doubled all the spices except the bay leaf…I forgot to put it in at all. Then I added my potatoes. I used at least two lbs of gold potatoes.
2) I made my own chicken broth, but used 8 cups of water instead of 5. (Making your own chicken broth is easy, cheaper, and goes farther. I just use a liquid bullion called Better Than Bouliion. It’s in the soup isle with the other soup bases. They have chicken and beef and I use both constantly! Full of flavor, but does not have the high salt content of the cubes)
3) I used 1/2 c of Half & Half in place of the heavy cream. My grocery was out of heavy cream when I went to buy these ingredients. I would have used 1/2 c no matter what though.

The soup turned out fantastic! My hisband and I were so pleased. I will definitely make again. We had seconds yesterday and both had enough left to take for lunch today.

Hi! My husband and I thought this was one of the best soups we have ever had! If I double the recipe, is it ok to freeze? Thanks!

Unfortunately, I cannot answer this with certainty as I have never tried freezing this myself – there were no leftovers left to freeze! Please use your best judgment for freezing and reheating.

My daughter shared this recipe with me last week. I took your advice and made a double batch and it disappeared within the first 2 days. We received 6″ of snow last night (which is quite a bit for those of us living in Mebane, N.C.) and I am working on tripling the batch for tonight’s dinner. Thanks so much for sharing such a delicious recipe!

We are trying to eat healthy (this month) I made the soup without the spicy sausage, added extra Spinach. It was great! Thanks Chungah

It looks like I’m in the minority here, and maybe I’m buying the wrong kind of Italian sausage or something, but for me, the soup was missing depth of flavor. I knew my husband wouldn’t care for it and I wouldn’t want to eat the leftovers, so I started experimenting. Adding a hint of cumin and a couple tablespoons of sour cream did the trick! I loved the final result!

This soup really is DAMN DELICIOUS……..Just made it and everyone LOVED IT. I substituted broccoli for spinach and added some chorizo meat.

What kind of Italian sausage? I’m unsure which type to buy. Does it come in links or the kind that come in one tube package?

Italian sausage comes in links, not in a tube package.

Jennifer, mine was not a link or a tube, but was just in a package like ground beef would be. As long as it’s spicy or hot Italian sausage, you’re good.

I just made it this morning. This soup is delicious! BF is going to want to marry me. Thanks for the recipe!

My all time favorite! I’ve made this soup several times before and I’ll continue to make it! My father absolutely loves it as well.. He ate a whole pot by himself (over a three day period). hehehe

This soup is amazing. . Such great flavor . I recommend this dish on a cold clowdy day.

I made this recipe but instead of potatoes I added shiitake mushrooms and instead of sausage I used chicken wings. I used more broth and herbs and put it in slow cooker for 6hours. I added the heavy cream and spinach in the last hour so the spinach wouldn’t be overly slimy.

I cooked this soup all the time, it’s definitely one of my favs I substitute the pork sausage for hot chicken Italian sausage to make it a little healthier but I love it both ways

Yum! Made this soup already two times.

Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! This is DAMN delicious soup! Out of 5 stars i give it a solid 6 stars. The only thing I would change in this recipe is to double it because it is that good. Thank you for sharing this recipe it is a keeper and a goto now!

I just made this tonight and it was so good!! I did make a few changes: I used ground turkey instead of sausage and evaporated milk instead of whipping cream. Next time I would use less onion, maybe half, because it got a little over-powering. But seriously a delicious soup!! Thank you!

This recipe is so delicious. I have made it a few times and freeze the leftovers. The leftovers are just as good! Would recommend this recipe to anyone!

Sorry if this has been asked already. Is there an alternative to the heavy cream for someone who’s lactose intolerant? I made this and it is so yummy! But it wasn’t good for my hubby. Thanks

No worries – here is a great article worth checking out regarding substitutions for lactose intolerance. Hope that helps!

Perfect, thank you!

I made cashew cream and it worked just fine! Blend 3/4 cup of raw cashews that have been soaked for an hour in boiling water and drained, with about 1/4 cup of fresh water. You Should get a nice creamy consistency.

Made this tonight with a couple changes. Used two envelopes of Knorrs Spring Vegetable (for the spices). added fresh celery and used one can evaporated milk. Added Parmesan cheese to each bowl. This is over the top wonderful. Thank you for sharing.

I made this for tonight’s dinner and my family loved it, I didn’t change one thing I followed the recipe. thanks for sharing it, definitely I will continue making it.

Has anyone added carrots and celery to this soup?

I’ve made this recipe several times and my family loves it. I’ve started to by the sausage without the casing to save some time and I love to add sliced mushrooms. Thanks so much for the recipe!

Just tried this one tonight, Did it with white potatoes (because I had them) and Murray’s chicken sausage. Came out really good. Thanks.

Yum! Rare when both my girls (9 & 11) love a meal that my husband & I love too. I used mild Italian turkey sausage (since kids don’t like heat) and omitted the red pepper flakes. I did put in a Large can of chicken broth which was closer to 6 Cups. I also tossed in kale with the potatoes instead of spinach at the end. It simmered a little longer (waiting for hubs to get home from work) so I ended up adding 4 Cups of water. I used half & half cause that’s what I put in my morning coffee so I had it on hand. 🙂 Sorry for noting all the slight modifications, but wanted to say what I did so I can do it the same way next time. It’s a keeper for sure!

I hope it is okay if I share some changes I have made to this soup. The changes came because of the many dietary issues we have in our household. We LOVE this soup. I love the simplicity and ease of this meal. I made this yesterday in the crockpot. I did not add the spinach or the cream until right before I served it. Also, I used yucca root rather than potatoes. The yucca came out like dumplings. It was wonderful. We cannot use dairy so I use coconut cream as my heavy cream substitute. No, it does not give it a coconut flavor. I place everything in the crockpot on low for 9 hours and it was perfect!!

I have also replaced the red potatoes with white sweet potatoes and the spicy with the sweet is super delicious!

This is so delicious and easy to make. I just left out the red pepper since I am cooking for 2, 6 year olds. Thank you for the delicious dinner.

Did increase sausage to 1 1/2 lb. sausage and spinach to 10oz. Everything else the same.
Thank you!

I have made this soup multiple times since you posted it last year. I honestly think it is my favorite homemade soup. Thank you so much for this recipe- it is so delicious!

(I keep everything the same but I usually only put in 1/4 teaspoon of the optional red pepper flakes- perfect amount of heat for me!)

Delicious! Having a bowl full right now. Thanks for the quick and easy dinner:)

This is my new favorite soup. I made it last night with an herby mild Italian sausage. It’s so good I can’t stop eating it!

“Very flavorful” according to my hubby. Plenty spicy from the hot Italian sausage without adding the crushed red pepper. Didn’t have heavy cream so I stirred in some sour cream. Will be making again, but may add more potatoes and spinach. Thank you!

This soup was absolutely perfect on a cold day! Came together so quickly and the flavor was just spot on. I followed the recipe exactly but used sweet basil sausage as that was what I had, and substituted some sunchokes for some of the potatoes. Absolutely delicious soup.

This soup sounds so good. I cannot wait to make a big pot of it this weekend for the snowy weather.

I made this with Italian-seasoned turkey sausage (it’s amazing, I sub it for Italian sausage in everything) and it takes the calorie count down to 235 per serving! I also added lots of dill because I love dill and it was great in here. Will definitely make this again.

This soup is delicious. So easy and inexpensive, since most of the stuff, I usually have on hand. I was hoping to have the leftovers the next day but there were NONE! I will double the recipe when I make it again! Thanks for sharing 🙂

Made this tonight. Way too much sausage. Next time I think I’ll cut the sausage by at least half or just cook the sausage and chop it up into rounds. So much loose sausage was just too much. This was otherwise absolutely delicious and the broth was amazing. Will definitely make again, I’ll just tweak it a bit. 🙂

I just made this soup yesterday and it was sooooo good! I used what I had on hand…a package of spicy turkey sausage (1 1/4 lbs.), a 10 ounce package of chopped frozen spinach and in addition, I added a cup of slice baby carrots. Thank you for sharing this simple and delicious recipe. You rock!

Great stuff! I’ve made this and the cheater pho recipe. Both were two of the best soups that I’ve ever made.

I’m sure this is a pretty overused expression on your comments, but this was damn delicious! Fun to make and man it was so awesome, thanks for a great recipe!

I can’t have dairy….Will this soup still work without the heavy cream?
