Loved this! I am watching my carbs, following South Beach diet. I used 1 1/2 lbs hot turkey sausage, browned that along with 1 large onion and 1 green pepper, diced, and 1 clove garlic. Added 2 cans low sodium chicken broth, 1 can diced tomatoes, 1 can beans and a nice helping of dried italian seasonings. I didn't need to use pepper flakes, because the meat was already spicy enough and even though my broth was low sodium, there was so much flavor in this soup that I didn't even need to add the extra salt. Quick to make, hearty, much flavor...great comfort food. I'll be making this alot. Thanks for posting!
I doubled the recipe and added half chopped green pepper and a small chopped zucchini (I try to get extra veggies into my familie's diet wherever I can). I brought it to a boil and transferred it to my crockpot to simmer all day. I had to decrease the red pepper flakes due to the wimp factor in my family, but I will add more to mine later. I also added some fresh basil, since I have an abundance in my garden. I tasted it before I added it, and it was tasty that way too. I plan on freezing half of this for a later date, and will add the tiny uncooked pasta when I am serving it. Thanks Vicki for an easy delicious recipe, that is quick to put together, and uses ingredients I usually have on hand, and that is always a plus!!!
