Italian Sausage Vegetable Soup


  • 1-1/3 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 2 pounds bulk Italian sausage
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) beef broth
  • 1 jar (26 ounces) pasta sauce
  • 1 can (15 ounces) sliced carrots, drained
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian flat beans, drained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Grated Parmesan or shredded mozzarella cheese, optional


  • 1. Cook macaroni according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a 6-qt. stockpot, cook sausage, onion and garlic over medium heat 8-10 minutes or until sausage is no longer pink, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain.
  • 2. Add broth, pasta sauce, carrots, beans, water, Italian seasoning and basil; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Drain macaroni; stir into soup. If desired, sprinkle servings with cheese.
    Freeze option: Before adding cheese, cool soup. Freeze soup and, if desired, cheese separately in freezer containers. To use, partially thaw in refrigerator overnight. Heat through in a saucepan, stirring occasionally and adding a little water if necessary. Sprinkle with cheese.
