Pumpkin Soup with Chicken Sausage

This soup recipe came from the October 2012 Food Network Magazine. I wasn't much impressed with this recipe. The broth was watery and not particularly flavorful. Most of the reviewers that like it had spiced up the flavor in some way.  I questioned when I was adding the 2 1/2 cups of water at the end and debated not doing it and now wished I hadn't. I replaced the chicken apple sausage with vegetarian. I love the fried sage leaves on top, but not enough to make this again. And I wonder where they got the hefty 522 calories per bowl number. My vegetarian sausages had 1,000 calories total or less than 200 per serving, but with only some chicken broth and vegetables for the rest of the ingredients, I don't know where they got that large number. If you decide to make this I would read all the reviews online and decide what else you might add to it. The picture came courtesy of the Food Network. I apparently didn't take a picture of mine.
