Doesn't it look colorful and delicious?!I originally got this recipe from a Foods class that I took in high school but I tweaked it a little bit. I don't really follow recipes very well but what I make usually turns out to be delicious.
- About 2 cups water
- Sliced carrots
- Sliced celery
- 1 diced small yellow onion
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- 2 cloves of garlic
- basil, oregano, thyme, black pepper, and salt
- 1 pound Italian sausage
- 1 sliced Zucchini
- 1 can red kidney beans, drained
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- Dry Pasta (as much as you desire)
In a skillet brown the sausage and cook thoroughly. In saucepan combine sausage, water, carrots, celery, onion, bouillon, garlic, and spices. Cook until the vegetables are tender. Once vegetables are tender add the last four ingredients and cook until the pasta is tender.
Serve in pretty soup bowl and enjoy.
This recipe is actually very easy, it's just a bit time consuming because of the vegetables, but I find the slicing and cooking very relaxing, plus the finished soup is delicious.
Just as a side note I've been considering going to a Culinary Arts School after I graduate from SUU. I still have a year to go before I really have to make a decision, but for now I'm just considering it as an option later on. I'd like to know what everyone else thinks.
