Sausage Tomato Soup

"We tasted soup a lot like this at a local restaurant," Marilyn Lee from Manhattan, Kansas happily reports. "When I came across a recipe that sounded similar, I made a few changes to create this version."

    So Good! I accidentally bought salsa instead of picante sauce and it was still delicious. The sugar amount is small but next time I might leave it out. This soup is so tasty the sugar is probably not needed.

    This is a very hearty soup. I only had hot sausage on hand so I used that. Next time I might throw in a little pasta. Delicious!
