My brother-in-law loved this soup. He said it was the best soup he had ever had. Best compliment I have ever had! I recently found this recipe on the back of a PREMIUM saltine cracker box.

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.

So good, family pleaser. I use a different pasta though. Cellentani by Barilla it doesn't soak up all the broth like rotini does when you have leftovers.

So I saw this recipe a few weeks ago and just had to try but I made a few alterations that I feel many people will appreciate and enjoy even better...Instead of regular Italian Sausage I used Chicken Sausage, Kale instead of spinach,vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and ditalini instead of rotini. I have to say I absolutely loved it and my co workers truly enjoyed it as well. My daughter, who is 10 years old today and my 3 year old devoured it!!!
