Fall is officially here and I am craving soup- all the time. I LOVE soup! I had some sausage in my freezer & wanted something new to make, so I made this amazing soup this week. I was glad that it made a lot, because we ate it for 2 days. Sometimes that's a good thing!
Here's the recipe:
1 lb. ground sausage- I used one that was seasoned with sage & it was really good!
4 cloves garlic
1 minced onion
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can kidney beans
1 can white beans
1 diced bell pepper (I used a red one)
2 large carrots, diced
3 stalks of celery, diced
fresh basil & oregano
2 cans chicken or vegetable stock
salt & pepper, to taste
2 c. uncooked noodles
Saute the sausage and onions. Add garlic, & vegetables and continue cooking until tender-crisp. Add remaining ingredients, except noodles and allow it to simmer until all the vegetables are cooked through. Add noodles last and let them cook in the soup until soft- you will probably need to add more liquid.
Season to taste. Serve and top with Parmesan cheese.
