I used hot Italian sausage because I like a little heat. I didn't have parsnips so doubled the carrots. Turned out delicious and filling on a rainy night. Thanks for sharing!

Very good soup! I used hot Italian sausage to give it more pizazz and it did that! Crusty bread went so good with it heated in the oven and slathered with butter.

So easy to make, and it made a great lunch. I subbed the parsnips for turnip and it really added great flavor to the soup. Thank you for sharing your recipe Ellie! Linda

Great soup. Only change I made was to use hot turkey Italian sausage. Will be making this again over the winter, as it is very hearty and warming.
