This wasn't quite what I was looking for but it sure was good. I used regular sausage and I think that made it a little greasy but otherwise it was great and I'm not even that big a fan of greens!
Delicious and quick even with all the substitutions I had to make. I also have a 3 year old and a 1 1/2 year old - both finicky eaters. Both loved it as well as my husband. I did not have the green pepper or collard green (haha) so I substituted fresh spinach. It came out a little too wilted (duh). Anyway, the kids ate it and my husband wants more =) Thanks!
Excellent soup, loved by all! (I did add an extra dash of the hot sauce.)
Could NOT have smelled better on a cold day...perfect comfort food.
