Italian Sausage Soup {with Mushrooms, Onions & Peppers}.

Like many of our favorites, this recipe happened by accident.  While making one of our go-to week night meals (Jennie-O Hot Italian Turkey Sausage with onions, peppers, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes) I came to realize my favorite part of the dish was the broth.  The awe-mazing broth. 

So why not build on those wonderful flavors and turn that dish into this Italian Sausage Soup {with Mushrooms, Onions & Peppers} soup recipe.  I’m all in.  One-pot, these ingredients, not a lot of words….just flavor building.

  • Heat olive oil over medium heat in a Dutch oven. Add in sausage links and brown, 3-4 minutes per side. Meanwhile slice and dice onions, mushrooms and peppers.
  • Reduce heat to medium-low. Add in onions, mushrooms, peppers, and garlic; cover and allow to cook down for 15 minutes or until just tender.
  • Add in tomatoes, broth and seasoning; allow to simmer gently for 20 minutes. Meanwhile prepare pasta according to package instructions.

We love pasta in soups when cooked separately and added late to the dish. Otherwise the pasta wants to drink up that awe-mazing broth.
The fresh spinach shown in the ingredients picture, never made it into this batch of soup. I would add it just a couple minutes before serving.
