This is a real simple Italian soup to prepare. The chicken sausage used is Al Fresco all Natural Sweet Italian Chicken Sausage. The canned tomatoes are stewed with basil and oregano as well as the spices in the sausage, there is no need to add any other flavorings. The pasta is a 3-cheese tortellini. This soup is full of flavor.
While looking at other bloggers blogs who have visited Splendid Recipes and More, I found this recipe at The Skinny Fiber Blog, though I did make a few changes.
Just roast the potatoes, cook the pasta, chicken sausage and cut the green beans and mix all together in the sauce pot. Enjoy!!
