Pasta Soup 

After a few months away from this little blog, I'm back with a great soup recipe.
Found this recipe in Cooking Light Magazine and it is perfect for cool weather.  I served it with Rosemary bread (found and Costco) and it was a hit.

  • 3/4 cup uncooked small shell pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • (4-ounce) link hot turkey Italian sausage, casing removed
  • 1 cup diced onion 
  • 1 cup diced carrot 
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • garlic cloves, chopped
  • (15-ounce) can unsalted chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • (15-ounce) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 4 cups unsalted chicken stock (such as Swanson)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  1. 1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
  2. 2. While pasta cooks, heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add sausage; cook 3 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring to crumble. Add onion and next 6 ingredients (through garlic); cook 10 minutes. Add chickpeas, tomatoes, and stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes. Stir in pasta, salt, and black pepper; cook 1 minute.

    Hope you enjoy it !
