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 over cooked pasta! I forgot to buy mushrooms so I had to leave them out but I really want to try it again with them. This was my first time cooking with leeks and I really liked the flavor; I asked my produce guy and he suggested to only use the white part of them.. I also only used 1 Tablespoon of tobasco and it was just right for our liking! After about an hour the tortellini starts to soak up the liquid so you may want to add an extra cup of broth. Hubby loved it and I did too! Will make again and again!..Thanks! Read More

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! Read More

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 the recipe because we have a big family and that made the recipe call over just over a 1/4 cup of hot sauce!!! That would have killed us!!! I used Tabasco and measured added and tasted after each tablespoon and ended up with 2 1/2 tablespoons for the amount of liquid. I added chopped baby spinach just before I served this and it was an excellent addition. I served it with crusty bread and it was a fabulous meal. All of that being said as others have shared I was skeptical at first that this would have any flavor at all. But evidently just the stock with the hot sauce and salt and pepper were enough. I assume that the stock also picked up the flavor of the sausage and other veggies as it cooked as well. Very good soup and hubby says I get a gold star for this one: ) Read More

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 time. Definitely give this one a try - it's amazing how much flavor you get with minimal ingredients! Oh also I didn't have leeks on hand so I used a whole onion instead and it was fantastic. Read More

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 mushrooms and only 1 tbsp of hot sauce. Now my husband and I love this recipe. Read More

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. Read More

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 use up so I used 2 c. beef broth and 4 c. chicken broth. Our company liked it too. Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More
