Easy Italian Sausage Vegetable Soup

 

The flavor was amazing, the aroma during the cooking filled up our entire house. We used chicken broth instead of beef broth and water, and it made a very tasty base for the soup. A few slices of good bread was all we served with this soup. YUM!

We made this soup in our heavy-duty soup pot instead of slow cooker. The flavor was amazing, the aroma during the cooking filled up our entire house.

We used chicken broth instead of beef broth and water, and it made a very tasty base for the soup. The sausages and the assorted veggies soaked lots of yumminess from the broth. A few slices of good bread was all we served with this soup. YUM!
