Easy Pasta Soup


I have another recipe for you today that fits my goal for this year to “simplify” when possible. This soup comes together quickly thanks to canned products.  I also cook the pasta in a separate pot while I am browning the sausage.  This helps get the soup ready sooner by multi- tasking. I have included instructions in the notes to cook the pasta in the soup if you would rather have a one pot meal.

I have several more soup recipes coming up for you over the next few weeks.  I have really been loving the simplicity of a bowl of soup for dinner.

Easy Pasta Soup
 
Ingredients
  • 1½ cup uncooked pasta (I used mini bowtie)
  • 1 lb. mild italian sausage
  • ½ cup onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 1 (24 oz) marinara sauce (I used Kirkland brand)
  • 1 clove of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 tsp dried parsley
  • Optional topping: shredded mozzarella cheese or parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. In a large sauce pan, bring to boil water to cook pasta. Add pasta and cook according to package. Once cooked, rinse and set aside.
  2. In the meantime, in a large stock pot, brown sausage with onion and pepper until sausage is fully cooked. Drain off any grease.
  3. Add remaining ingredients to the pot along with the sausage mixture. Let simmer for 15 minutes and add cooked pasta.
  4. Serve soup topped with shredded mozzarella or parmesan cheese. Serves 6 -8.
Notes
If you prefer to cook the pasta in the soup you can. You will need to increase the water by at least 1 cup and let the soup simmer for 30 minutes instead of the 15 in order to fully cook the pasta. I prefer to cook it in a separate pot in order to get dinner done sooner.
