Minestrone and Sausage Soup

minestrone and sausage soup recipe

This soup is so thick and hearty that it could almost be a stew! This recipe is from our good friends, the Hunter’s. We eat this year-round . . . it is delicious!

Minestrone and Sausage Soup
4 cups beef broth (or bouillon to make 4 cups)
2 cups water
2 cans (8 oz each) tomato sauce
1 can petite-diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 1/2 cups diced celery
1 1/2 cups diced carrots
1 tsp onion salt
1 tsp garlic salt
1 sausage link, sliced (we love the Jenny-O turkey sausage link)
2-3 Tbsp Italian seasoning

Simmer all of the above in a large stock pot until veggies become tender. In a separate pot, cook 8-10 oz of any pasta according to directions (we love shell pasta- like what you can see in the picture). When noodles are done, add to soup and serve. Place fresh grated Parmesan cheese on top.

Makes 5-6 servings.

    i wish you would do this recipe using all fresh ingredients… no canned tomatoes or beans. i have been changing the way i cook from getting away from processed foods and canned anything….yes i know sometimes there is no time to make everything from scratch but this would be lovely with fresh products and then it can be stored in the freezer which would then be a simple quick and grab meal during a busy week.
    cant wait to try this with all fresh ingredients…….
