I took a chance on this after finding that I had a bunch of artisan bread I had to eat. What a fantastic recipe! I subbed in Field Roast Italian Sausage (the best brand of meatless sausage ever) to keep it leaner and added in 1 chopped green pepper and it turned out great! Match it with some ciabatta bread and it goes from 5 stars to 8!

With hand blender (or in regular blender), puree most of the soup mixture until thick. leave some chunks of tomato whole. Add sausage pieces, salt and pepper to taste.
