Zuppa di Primavera (Summer Soup)

Christy Finecy


Until this summer, this was known as "Dad's Sausage and Pepper Concoction". It is a hit no matter where he takes it. It has become a "must take" tradition for family reunions. Every time he takes it somewhere he gets asked for the recipe.

It's better the second day, assuming there are leftovers. When it gets thicker, as it will do the longer it cooks, it is great served over pasta.
