    Delicious! I removed the potatoes, and used half and half instead of condensed milk to make it fit my low carb diet. Will definitely make this over and over again! - 3/12/09

  • So delicious! Added sprinkle of red pepper flakes & 1 diced carrot. Sub. 10 Hillshire Farms Lil' Smokies, cut into 4ths, for the sausage, & added them right into the soup without browning; plus extra water & reduced-salt chicken bullion for extra broth. Fabulous! - 6/19/14

  • AWESOME! My husband is not a big soup fan but when we go to the Olive Garden he always, and I mean always, orders their zuppa. When I found this recipe I couldn't wait to try it. I was not disappointed, and neither was he. It has become a staple in my soup recipes. - 1/26/14

  • So good! I doubled up on the kale to stretch it to feed 6. And the recipe as-written was a little bland; I added some extra salt, and it was perfect! - 10/17/12
