This is a recipe I invented myself after tweaking a few Italian sausage soup recipes I've tried. This is wonderful on a cold winter night or anytime you want to throw together a quick and tasty dinner served w/ garlic bread and a nice salad.

Great tasting soup! I used a mild Italian sausage & a couple of large cloves of garlic, low sodium tomato sauce (& chicken broth) & also used lemon pepper instead of the salt & pepper! Wonderful & definitely a keeper! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's PAC]
