    I made this in the crockpot and it turned out well. I took the suggestions of others; it tasted really good and my husband really liked it- and he is really picky about how food tastes. I cooked the turkey sausage and onions in a pan then put them in the crock pot; I added the following: garlic, cannellini beans, petite diced tomatoes, sweet turkey sausage (I would use spicy instead of sweet next time),fresh grated parmesan cheese which I added at the beginning of cooking and some when I served it. I think it would have tasted just as good without the half and half or evaporated milk. Also be sure to put the spinach in in the last half hour-I put mine in with the rest of the ingredients and the spinach was a little mushy.  -  12 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was okay. I pretty much followed the recipe and I felt like it was missing something. Next time, I WILL use spicy sausage and add white beans. I think it would also benefit from some fresh basil and parsley. It smelled wonderful, and I served it with a caesar salad and garlic rolls. Oh, by the way, since sausage links are sold mostly in packages of 5, just throw them all in and use 8 cups of broth instead of 6. It works.  -  20 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This soup made a great meal. To make it lower in fat, I used turkey sausage and 98% fat free chicken broth. I also used frozen chopped spinach. Delicious!  -  21 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
