  1. Of the few dozen Skinnytaste recipes I’ve tried, this soup is my favorite. I’ve made it many times because I crave the flavors this soup offers. I add my own “Italian sausage” spice mix to lean ground turkey (usually cheaper than buying prepared Italian turkey sausage) and use Better than Bouillon low-sodium veg broth. Sometimes I forego the potatoes altogether and add double carrots instead because their sweetness, to me, is what makes this soup so damn delicious. The hard part is not eating three servings!

  2. This soup is really good! I used a full pack of turkey sausage and more potatoes than recipe called for. I didn’t think it needed the water.   Very filling! Would be great served with garlic bread. Will definitely make again! 

  3. Made this again last night, and it’s wonderful as always. I added feta on top this time, and it was a lovely addition.
