    What a great hearty soup for fall. A hunk of crusty bread and serve the rest of the wine in the recipe for a drink or two and your all set.

    i saw this in a gooseberry patch cookbook, the only difference was using a 16 oz can of diced tomatoes instead of the 4 med tomatoes. we absolutely love this. i use the dried cheese tortelllini in the macaroni isle. i also made this with ground beef instead of the sausage, also ground chicken and also chunks of chicken breast with chicken broth. great anyway i make it!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I love trying new recipies and have a 17 year old and a husband that will try anything once. Even my Mom will try just about anything and will help cook once in a while. I usually make my mom do a marathon cookie bake during the holidays. She groans but I think she really likes it. I grew up in Florida and moved to North Carolina 14 years ago. I love the beauty of the mountains and the seasons but small town living can be both a little boring and joyous at times. The seasons let you cook different foods; stews and casseroles become popular during the cold weather months and of course lighter dishes during the summer.
