Tuscan Turkey Sausage Soup Recipe

"While trying to reproduce my favorite soup from an Italian restaurant's menu, I hit upon this tasty combination of turkey sausage, broth and mushrooms," pens Thomas Licking of Green Lake, Wisconsin. Fennel, caraway seeds and herb seasoning give the quick-to-fix soup plenty of flavor without adding salt. Serve it steaming hot alongside a crisp salad and bread for a well-rounded meal.

"This soup is delicious. I used ital turkey sausage and took off casing before cooking. Added onions to sausage to soften. Left out mushrooms since hubby does not care for these. Did not have a leek but added some sugar snap peas and this turned out wonderful. This soup is very flavorful."
