Spicy Sausage and Potato Soup

Yesterday I tried a recipe I found on a can of tomato sauce. I did make some substitutions for ingredients I had on hand. The original recipe called for bulk hot sausage, chicken broth and tomato sauce. This soup is hearty and smells almost like a crawfish boil while cooking. I will definitley make it again. Next time I will add a tablespoon of flour to the sausage, pepper and onions before adding the liquids. I think to will give the broth a little more body.

Spicy Sausage and Potato Soup

Makes 6 servings


1 lb. sweet turkey Italian sausage
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium green bell pepper, chopped

3 cups potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes, pureed

In a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat, cook and crumble sausage, red pepper, onions and peppers until no longer pink.

Add remaining ingredients; salt to taste. Bring to a boil; reduce heat.

Simmer, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender (about 20-25 minutes).
