Ingredients
  

  • 2 spicy Italian sausage links
  • 2 cups Tresomega Gluten-Free Organic Quinoa Penne Pasta
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 12 oz. bag frozen mixed vegetables carrots, peas, green beans, corn
  • ½ cup frozen diced onion or fresh
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and diced
  • 15 oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes with juice
  • 10.75 oz. can tomato soup
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ½ teaspoon crushed red pepper or more to taste
  • Optional: fresh shaved Parmesan cheese

Directions
 

  • Place the sausage links in a skillet over medium heat. Cook for 8 minutes, turning sausages over every few minutes, until cooked though. Set aside until cool enough to handle.
  • Meanwhile, add 8 cups of water and kosher salt to a large stock pot. Bring to a boil, add in pasta and cook for 10-12 minutes or until just barely al-dente. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water. Drain remaining and set aside.
  • Return the stock pot over medium heat and add remaining ingredients (mixed vegetables through crushed red pepper).
  •  Stir ingredients together and bring to a simmer.
  • Meanwhile, slice cooked sausage into ½-inch rounds. Optionally, remove the casings.
  • Simmer soup for 20 minutes then add in sausage and cook for 10 minutes more.
  • Stir in cooked pasta. If the soup is too thick for your liking, thin out with the reserved pasta water, adding ¼ cup at a time and stirring well before adding more.
  • Divide into bowls and top with fresh shaved Parmesan cheese if you like.

Notes

If making soup in advance, do not add pasta until ready to serve.
