Turkey Sausage Soup with Fresh Vegetables Recipe

Our family is big on soup. This favorite is quick to make and very tasty, and it gives me plenty of time to have fun with my kids and grandkids while it slow-cooks. —Nancy Heishman, Las Vegas, Nevada

"What a nice, light , yet warming soup! I used smoked turkey sausage instead of the Italian and did not have the seasoned salt or basil ...... the soup was very good with loads of flavor. I will use the Italian sausage the next time I make it ..... I'm sure it will be just as tasty!!"
