Soup's Not Just For Wednesday Part 4

Cast your vote for Italian Sausage Soup

Lately, the best part of Wednesday scary movie night has been the time spent with a dear friend, hot soup and warm bread. This recipe is another favorite. The movies not so much. Maybe we need to find a different genre. Any suggestions?

I'm definitely going to make this! I have a bunch of Italian sausage that needs used up and I have all the ingredients, except shells, but I do have other small pasta I will use instead. Plus, I have a ton of fresh basil from my herb garden, so I will use that up too! Thanks for sharing!
