Awesome base recipe! I really liked this soup. It seems like as long as you use this base of italian sausage, tomatoes beef broth and beans, then you can put in anything you like. I didn't have the right beans. so I used black beans. I didn't have zucchini or spinach, so I used 2 potatoes, an ear of corn, 2 stalks celery, a large bell pepper, and 1/2 c onion. still great. I used italian sausage bratwurst type sausage links and just browned them well and then cut them into slices. This made pretty circles of sausage in the soup. For the second time, day before Christmas when we have a crowd of people over, I'm using twice the veggies and broth and tomatoes and still just 1 lb of sausage and adding a bag of mezzaluna four cheese ravioli. I'm sure that will work too. (edited review-it worked fine with more veggies and small cheese filled ravioli, if you have a crowd and want to extend your soup!)
