My family loves this soup. We have made it with the sage sausage as well as Italian sausage and both ways are wonderful! One thing we have discovered is that the brand of frozen corn we use makes a difference in the taste and we prefer Birdseye baby bicolor. It seems to have a lot more "corn" flavor. If you want to kick this up a notch (and we usually do!) add a teaspoon (or more) of Chipotle Chili powder. Delish!
