  1. We LOVED this - the spicy chicken sausage gave it a really good flavor. Only 4 stars because 30 minutes of simmering would be far too much for the tortellini so I put it in just for 8-10 minutes according to package directions. Worked like a charm. Also I had some leftover beef broth to - Read more ...
  2. This was fantastic even those in the household who don't like soup ate this.
  3. I loved this!. I can only give it 4 stars because you'll need to tweak a little... Follow the directions in the recipe but don't put the totellini in until time specified on the package. Mine said cook for 2 minutes. If you put in for the full 30 minutes as recipe states you'll have - Read more ...
  4. This is an AWESOME soup!! I think I ate 1/2 of the pot the second it was ready. I used kielbasa instead of the chicken sausage because I think with the mushroom and leek it would be a better blend of flavors but Im sure its great either way.
  5. We liked this soup except for one thing...way too spicy! I only added 1 tablespoon of tabasco and thought we better test it before adding more. 3 tablespoons and your lips would have been on fire! Be careful with adding the tabasco!
  6. Happen to have all the stuff at home that needed to be used...YUMMY! The only change was instead of sausage (not a fan usually) I used chopped/diced chicken breast and cooked it with the leeks and mushrooms than added the broth..ect. Hope this helps I was hesitate to try but glad I did.
  7. I'm giving this 4 stars only because I tweaked the recipe a little but it was an excellent base. Following another's post I used the spinach and feta sausage. I used the 3 cheese tortellini but it came with spinach pasta. I used chicken stock instead of chicken broth for a richer base. I doubled - Read more ...
  8. This really is a great recipe. I used italian sausage instead of chicken sausage as my store was out of it. I increased the mushrooms for a heartier soup and used twice as many tortellini (5 cheese!). It was to die for.
  9. I rated it a 3 the first time we made it because to me it tasted like hot dog soup. The second time at it I used a spinach and feta chicken sausage instead of a muchroom chicken sausage Tapatillo hot sauce instead of Chalula a spinach and parmesan torellini instead of 3 cheese double - Read more ...
  10. I must admit this recipe didn't sound like it would wow me but boy was I wrong! There's something about the combination of sausage and tortellini in chicken broth with fresh cilantro and hot sauce - WOW! The flavors all mesh beautifully and develop into the most tasty delicious soup I've had in a LONG - Read more ...
