Creamy Tomato Basil And Italian Sausage Soup


My sister made this for our family dinner a couple of weeks ago and we all LOVED it! She just laughed when she shared the recipe because get this ladies, this soup comes together so fast and easy. I had a pot of it together in less than 20 minutes!!! It tastes restaurant quality in every way. I served it with cheese bread and salad. Serves 4.

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 lb. Italian sausage
10 fresh basil leaves, chopped
1 1/2 C. half and half
1 C. water
26 oz. jar spaghetti sauce
salt and pepper

Heat olive oil in lg. pot. Add sausage and brown. Add basil leaves, half and half, water and spaghetti sauce. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer until ready to serve. Easy as that.

This recipe was found at Picky-Palate. One of my new favorite spots to find new recipes:0)
