Tuscan Soup

Recipe by Lorac

I found this at another web site. I made changes to make it less spicy, more flavorful and more "Tuscan". My husband loves this so much he reheats it for breakfast! Some crusty bread and a glass Italian red wine, " Mama Mia " what a meal!

This made a lovely and delicious soup. The only change was I used 3 cloves of garlic. We loved the flavor of the sweet Italian sausage. This made a nice, hearty, easy mid-week meal. I served it with Italian bread and a glass of merlot. Thanks Lorac :D
