This is one of the best fast, easy and nutritious "every day" meals I have come across in a long time. I used the hot turkey sausage because I love it spicy and it was perfect. My husband is not a soup kind of guy but we ate the entire pot and he asked me when I was making it again...the answer was "often"!!! Don't hesitate - MAKE THIS SOUP!!!
