Notes

  • This Italian sausage soup is a fast, weeknight option.  It comes together quickly and feeds a crowd.
  • Swap in whatever sausage you prefer---hot, mild, Italian, pork, etc.
  • If you buy your Italian Sausage in links, remove the casing and discard. Brown up the rest for the soup. 
  • Use Italian diced tomatoes, diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano, or even regular canned, diced tomatoes.  If you use regular, add your own dried Italian seasonings.
  • You could also you Italian San Marzano Tomatoes in a can.  Use your fingers or a meat chopper to chop the whole tomatoes into bite-sized pieces. 
  • Swap in white beans for red kidney beans, if desired in this Italian Sausage Soup.
  • This would be great served along Cheesy Garlic Biscuits.
