    This was a great soup! Layered with flavor. Store didn't have sweet sausage so I used hot, came out great! I also doubled the recipe and I'm glad I did, it went fast!

    I followed the recipe VERY carefully and we thought it was very, very bland. We think it has definite possibilities, but it is definitely missing something...seasonings, herbs, spices. Help! We want to love this.

    I'm making this tonight, but I'm confused (easily done!) if the sausage amount totals 3.2 oz, or if the recipe calls for 3 sausages at 3.2 oz EACH (9.6 oz total). If it's the first option, the recipe should have been written - "3 links sweet turkey Italian sausage (about 3.2 oz), casings removed." Venting done! :) UPDATE - I used only 3.2 oz total, and this was one of the BEST homemade soups I've ever had! Can't wait for leftovers tonight!! YUM!

    I thought this recipe was very good. The sausage adds a lot of flavor so that I didn't even have to add any other spices. I couldn't get escarole at the market so I substituted Swiss chard. This was a quick and easy soup that I'd make again.

    This is easy with excellent flavor. The best escarole soup I have made so far.

    I have made this many times with various alterations. I've used different beans, different sausage, different stocks and usually spinach instead of escarole and every time it's excellent. Filling and tasty.
