I love this recipe I took the advice of the other comment that worked for Carrabba's and added a tiny bit of fennel and crushed red peppers flakes since my sausage did not contain fennel and i felt it needed a a boost. This was a great soup just like had at Carrabba's . Will keep as a favorite!

I worked at Carrabba's for a long time and still LOVE the food. I know that they use Italian Fennel sausage. I worry that if someone uses a kielbasa the flavor will not be exactly right...
