I live in Bologna (30 years now!) and have to say that this recipe is pretty darned authentic. There is more garlic than Tuscans are accustomed to using (that's an american tendency) but if you like it fine. Be sure to buy sausage that isn't already full of garlic. Only other thing....add the red wine to deglaze the skillet after having drained off the fat from the sausage and having put it aside for a moment. THEN add the onions garlic and squash and seasonings and sweat them tender before putting the sausage back into the skillet and adding the broth and spinacini leaves (that's what they're called here). Details but will make for flavors that are more distinct with no added work. Good recipe!! Buon appetito! Read More

This recipe sounded so good and got such good ratings but it was really lacking in flavor. The only change I made was that I added extra broth so it made a little more. I would not make it again. Read More

Rainy day here in CA so home made soup sounded good. This soup was delicious...easy-peasy to make. I did tweak it a bit as I had no red wine; used 3 T. balsamic vinegar instead and it worked fine. Enjoy! Read More

We loved this soup. Mama Mia! Italian flavor AND easy to make. I added a little diced celery and carrots along with the onion and can't bring myself to use canned chicken broth when it's so easy to make and freeze.. for times like this.. but those were the only changes. This would be great for company with some fresh bread ripped not sliced for sopping the final drips at the bottom of the bowl. Great soup on a cold night! Thanks for the recipe DG more offerings like this and you'll be one of my AR favorites! Read More

This was an excellent base soup recipe. I made it with Italian pork sausages and homemade chicken stock. I didn't have an onion so I added celery green pepper and mushrooms as well as the tomatoes beans and spinach. I also cooked cheese tortellini and added it to the soup just before serving. We added parmesan. It was delicious! Read More

This soup is so good! I used sweet sausage and after cooking that I threw it all into my slow cooker except saved the spinach till the last hour. The leftovers were even better the next day. The Pecorino Romano cheese is a must! Definitely a keeper! Thank you Read More

This soup is absolutely delicious!! I mean really really good! And as a novice cook I appreciate that it is fairly easy to make. I added celery and carrots to the mix when I sautéed the sausage onion and garlic and omitted the squash simply b/c I do not like it in soup. I also added some crushed red pepper (approx. tsp or to taste). Yum! I suggest letting the soup simmer longer than 15 minutes in about 45 55 minutes it tasted a whole lot better. Just add the spinach about 15 minutes before finishing as the recipe states. Then break out some good crusty bread and dive in! The leftovers are just as good if not better. Will make this again and again! THANK YOU very much DomesticGoddess! Read More

This soup was very easy to make and tastes delicious. I followed the recipe and did not make any changes which is very unusual for me. I got to the end and my mind kept telling me I needed to add more seasoning...but when I tasted the soup it was perfect as is. Read More
