Italian Sausage and Pepper Soup in Just 30 Minutes

Can you really ever have enough soup?  I think not.  I am not big on whimpy soups.  I like hearty flavorful, 'beefy' soups.  The kind of soups that stick to your ribs that you can walk away from the table without needing to eat a whole loaf of bread too and really feel satisfied.

Lately, I have been craving stuffed peppers and also sausage and peppers.  This fabulous recipe brings you the best of both worlds.  Hot, sweet, pork, chicken or turkey this soup is for you!
