Very good and quick and easy. Added a bit more sausage than what was called for and skipped the oil and butter. Otherwise made as written.

We had this soup for the first time tonight and loved it! I couldn't stop myself from having two helpings. We omitted the olive oil, doubled the meat, added an extra cup of broth and added a cup of ditalini pasta and cooked for ten minutes.

Absolutely delicious and easy! I double the meat, but that's just personal preference.

Wonderful. I used kale instead of spinach. To lighten, omitted the butter, and used 2 links of spinach/feta chicken sausage. I used a good no- salt stock vs broth. I did rinse the beans to eliminate the sodium. Used a can of low sodium diced tomoatoes, too. Added extra red pepper, too. Even better day 2.
