  • Very Good

    Ths was a very bowl of soup. I was almost going to pass because of the prior comment on page, but I am glad I didn't. Very good for a cold day. Very nutrutious also. The Kale gives it the bitter taste and the sausage is wonderful. I added rice in the bottom of the bowl and made it hearty. - 5/12/09
