Welcome to Taste This Thursday once again! This week I wanted to share my favorite soup in the whole world ..I got introduced to this Soup by my sister about 4 years ago at The Olive Garden.

Ohh does this ever look yummy!!! My husband would love this, espicially since there is bacon in it. ;) I love making homemade soups, hot in the Winter and cold ones in the Summer. I am stopping by and following on the hop and looking forward to reading more wonderful recipes. Hope you are having a great week.

The soup looks great! I pinned it so I'll remember to try it one of these days. I linked up a recipe for a delish chicken, mushroom, artichoke dish and also a very versatile bread recipe that forms the base for lots of different types of bread! Thanks for the linky.

This soup does not only look amazing, but it TASTES AMAZING! I have made this multiple times, and I have found that I have to double the recipe because whenever I make it, EVERYONE wants it, and I love having a ton of leftovers, because it tastes even better the second day!
The only thing I change, is I like to have 1/2 of the Italian sausage to be spicy, adds a nice kick of flavor!
