Italian Sausage Soup

This is a very simple soup that my grandkids love. If it's just adults, I usually add a few red pepper flakes to spice it up a bit. From Betty Crocker.

This soup has wonderful flavor and is very easy. I didn't use oil to cook the sausage to cut down on the fat and did add some zucchini that I had in my fridge that needed to be used. Makes for a nice lunch or a super quick supper. Thanks for posting this! Made for Football Pool ~ Superbowl 2010.

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I used crushed tomatoes instead of diced tomatoes because my kids don't care for "chunks" of tomatoes. I also didn't use the olive oil to cook the sausage and I used dreamfield pasta to save on the carbs. When serving, I added some shredded cheese.
