    Yummy soup, used a can of drained corn instead of red kidney beans & replaced barley for pasta. Added fresh chopped garlic when frying the Turkey sausage! This one is a keeper! Thank you!

    Very flavorful and simple. I took sausage out of casing before cooking. I used 12 oz of sausage and a full cup of dried bowtie pasta to beef up the soup and it was great. Served it with a nice fresh baked bread and it was perfect and very satisfying for dinner.

    I like the flavor an dtexture of the soup. I think I will substitute Kale and leave out the sausage to reduce the sodium.
