We had our first snow day yesterday...this steamy, brothy, hearty soup was just the ticket for dinner. It's soooo yummy!
It simmers nearly 2 hours, but it's so worth the wait!
1 lb. ground hot turkey sausage
1 big onion, finely chopped
2 carrots, finely chopped
1 stalk celery, finely chopped
8 cups chicken broth
14.5 oz. can petite diced tomatoes (with juice)
8-oz. can tomato sauce
1 clove garlic, minced
2 t. Italian seasoning
1/2 c. dried orzo pasta
In a big soup pot, brown & drain sausage well. Add onion, carrots, celery, chicken broth, tomatoes, tomato sauce, garlic & seasoning. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, cover & simmer for an hour. Add uncooked orzo pasta, return to boiling, then simmer, uncovered for half hour to an hour. Enjoy!
