We have been having soup almost every single night this week. And now that I mention it, most days I’ve had soup leftovers for lunch so probably 80 percent of my food intake is in the soup category. I’m okay with that! I never get sick of soup and right now it’s 35 degrees outside and it’s official sweater and soup weather so I’m going all-out.
This week I whipped up this Sausage and Vegetable Soup and now I’m craving it day-in and day-out. Even my husband was wolfing down this soup and he’s techinically not a brothy soup lover. He likes it creamy. But in the case of this soup, he’s a big, big fan.
This soup features hearty vegetables and bold Italian sausage. I recently got a Johnsonville Sizzling Sausage Grill and I’m so impressed with how perfectly it cooks sausages every single time, in just fifteen minutes. With Christmas coming up, the grill makes a fantastic gift for home cooks and sausage lovers.

How to make delicious Sausage and Vegetable Soup in just 30 minutes:
1) First, boil your pasta for about 7-9 minutes until tender, then drain and set aside.
2) I the same pot you used to boil the pasta (saving dishes!) combine beef broth (or vegetable broth if you prefer), vegetables, tomato sauce, seasonings, and bring the mixture to a boil. Cook for about 10-12 minutes just until veggies are tender. Once you can easily pierce the carrots with a fork, it’s done.
3) Add your noodles and cooked and sliced sausage and give it a good stir. Now you should give it a taste and add a little salt and pepper if needed. If not, go straight to serving and top it with fresh thyme and parmesan cheese – totally optional of course but highly recommended!
What kind of noodles should I use?
Any short noodle will work well in this recipe. I like to use rotini noodles or another spiral noodle like cellentani. Egg noodles work great or even macaroni elbows or penne. Go with what you’ve got in your pantry or your whatever your favorite is!
What kind of vegetables can I use in this soup?
The carrots and green beans can easily be swapped out for another vegetable like corn, peas, cauliflower, or bell peppers. The onions and celery add a lot of flavor to the soup so I recommend keeping them no matter what other vegetables you decide to throw in.
This light and hearty soup is the perfect dinner to whip up in between holiday meals. It comes together in just 30 minutes and tastes SO good, even picky eaters won’t mind the veggies. Carrots, green beans, onions, celery, tomatoes, all paired with tender rotini pasta noodles and savory Italian sausage. This soup is everything I love about Winter soups!
