Italian Sausage Soup Adapted from an Allrecipes recipe



2 Tbs. olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 medium carrots, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 lb. sweet turkey Italian sausage (equivalent to 4 links – look at you being so healthy with the turkey!)
1 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried rosemary
1/4 tsp. dried crushed red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp. dried sage
1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes (try fire roasted!)
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
1 can cannellini (white kidney) beans
1 cup dried pasta shells


In a large pot, sauté onion and carrot in olive oil until softened, then add garlic and cook a minute more. Add turkey sausage and brown while breaking it into small bits. Add basil, rosemary, red pepper flakes and sage to pot, stir to combine. Add tomatoes, broth, water, and beans, bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat and simmer for 20 minutes. Stir in pasta shells, simmer another 5-10 minutes until pasta is cooked, and serve.
