Hey 'cous!-- had to add this comment -- Hubby doesn't like the same thing for two consecutive non-breakfast meals. He's been eating this soup for an entire week!-- When you made this for for Farm Show week it was a total hit. My initial comment was I would never be able to make it for Hubby because he wouldn't like the peppers ... well I'm glad I didn't offer to eat my hat! Hubby loved it! He said he loved the grease ... well there wasn't any ... I had to add a bit of olive oil to do the onions, peppers, and garlic. I used a small orange pepper instead of the green. "He-who-doesn't-like-turkey" was dumbfounded when I told him it was turkey sausage! Even 15 mo. old daughter loves this soup! A very YUMMY 5-stars from me and my family! This recipe proves that you don't need beef and fat/grease for a recipe to be really good.
What a great tasting soup! I made it for supper when we were expecting guests. They cancelled at the last minute so I froze most of it before I added the pasta. The next weekend I defrosted the soup, heated it, added the pasta, cooked for 20 minutes, and it was just as good as the first day. Then I had the treat of having soup every day (I am not kidding) at lunch for a week. Try this; you will like it!
Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup Tag 2009 for lunch today. I cut the recipe in half and followed the directions except for the water I used beef broth and water and added spinach because I needed to use it up. A very good and quick meal. Served with garlic bread.
