    I love soup, and thought this was very good. I added a cup of frozen mixed vegetables, 2 tablespoons of tomato paste and Italian seasoning instead of just oregano.

    This was the best soup for a rainy day. I did add a few things. When cooking the sausage, I added some Mrs. dash over it. At the end of recipe I added 1 and 1/2 cups of mix vegetables and let simmer for 45 min. My hubby loved it and wants me to make it again. Next time I will double the recipe

    I’m trying to Dubrow Keto Fusion diet and have been having success, so I decided to make this soup for my 4 hour refuel for a carb fix at the end of my day. The one thing I did that made it different than expected was that I used Johnsonville Italian Hot Sausage, and I also ground it while I browned it. It came out delicious, it’s aroma reminded me of pizza a little bit past that it was definitely the jump outside the box routine I was looking for. At 18ish carbs per serving, there’s no better way to do it! Sinlessly satisfactorily.
