This Italian Sausage Soup only takes about 30 minutes to make from start to finish. You can't beat that! Cook the sausage, dump everything else in the pot and simmer. Everything cooks in the same pot - including the pasta! I love one-pot dishes! Makes for an easy cleanup. We had this for lunch two days in a row. SO good!
