NOTES : "My husband is not a soup-for-dinner kind of guy, but he loves this
chunky, stick-to-your-ribs soup," laughs Nancy. "I always serve it with a
warm loaf of homemade bread."

Tip : "If you prefer the soup less spicy you can substitute sweet Italian
sausage for the hot sausage," suggests Nancy.

Bobbie's Note: This was a wonderful soup. It made more than 2 servings, so
we will be having some for lunch tomorrow. Great blend of flavors. Used
half hot/half mild sausage. I also used a whole can of beef broth and a
little extra zucchini and tortellini.
