    This was absolutely wonderful. I deviated a bit in the prep, after heating the sausage, I removed it from the pot & then added a Tbsp of olive oil & caramelized the onion & carrots, adding a splash of the chicken broth to aid the process. Anything in a a one pot prep is always a bonus. FYI, I entered this into Weight Watchers Points Plus calculator & its actually 0 points per serving!

    I am not much of a sausage person so it was a little meaty for me but my husband couldn't get his face out of the pan! I also added some quinoa to make it a little more hearty.

    Calories can't be right? Chicken broth alone has around 40 calories per cup.

    I doubled the onion and carrot, added two stalks of celery, fresh cracked pepper, and swapped in italian turkey sausage for the chicken sausage. Added a ton of flavor, but still very healthy. I also softened the veg. in olive oil before adding back in the sausage, and then deglazed the pan with broth, and finished off the recipe. Great!

    I substituted smoked turkey sausage and it tasted amazing! Also, from my calculations one serving is 3 Weight Watcher points. The nutritional info on this recipe is incorrect.

    I also added quinoa into this recipe and that absorbed some of the broth and added more protein to the dish. Overall, a hearty winter soup that turned out delicious. *For the not healthy, I browned the chicken sausage in bacon grease. Gave it some extra flavoring which added quite nicely to the dish.

    Sorry you didn't like it. I also added Fire Roasted tomatoes. I like soup better than stew consistancy, so I like it.
