30 Minute Hearty Italian Basil Sausage Soup

Raven Higheagle


Bubba was feeling under the weather so I made him a triple batch of our favorite chicken noodle soup. Well I have to say I was incredibly jealous. I wanted soup too! I tend not to resort to chicken noodle soup unless I am really,really,really sick. I want a thick rich hearty soup that will stick to your bones and fill you up. So, I got to work.
Italian sausage, fresh basil and a few more ingredients and I was staring at the soup from my dreams. Just 30 minutes and I was diving into a stick to your ribs kinda soup. Now that's what I'm talking 'bout.
