I made this last night and it is a fabulous tasting soup. We sprinkled it with a little parmesan and enjoyed thick slices of crusty French bread on the side.
Sausage Bow-Tie Soup
1 ½ lbs Turkey Italian sausage
1 medium green bell pepper, sliced into 1 inch slices
1 medium sweet onion, diced
1 clove garlic minced
6 cups water
1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons chicken bouillon granules
1 teaspoon dried basil
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper – more or less to taste (you just want a little hint of spice…don’t go overboard)
½ to 1 teaspoon salt
Black pepper to taste
2 ½ cups bow tie pasta, uncooked
Remove turkey sausage from casing and “crumble” into soup pan. Brown sausage. Before completely browned add green bell pepper, onion and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes or until veggies become soft and sausage is cooked through.
Add remaining ingredients except pasta. Let mixture come to a boil. Add pasta. Reduce heat and simmer for 15 to 18 minutes or until pasta is tender
