    This is great soup. My Mom gave me this recipe - I couldn't believe that it came from the back of the Premium Saltines box!! I copied it to my Weight Watchers recipe builder but must have saved it before adding the instructions. Googled 'Italian Sausage Soup' and here it was!! Thanks!

    BTW, for all you Weight Watchers...this is 10 PP a serving. A little high, but worth it! Use all low-fat or no fat ingredients when you can.

    I guess I was not paying attention when I was buying the ingredients and bought ground Italian Sausage. It was good. I think that is what I will use when I make it again. My whole family really liked it.
