"I first tasted a soup similar to this at a restaurant. They wouldn't give me the recipe, so I went home and created my own," recalls Shirley Taylor of Russiaville, Indiana. "I like to serve this spicy soup with biscuits, breadsticks or corn bread."

Ingredients

  • 1 Italian sausage link, casing removed
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cubed peeled potatoes
  • 1/4 cup chopped carrot
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup canned sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • Dash celery seed
  • Dash garlic salt
  • 1/3 cup broken uncooked spaghetti (2-inch pieces)

Directions

  1. Crumble sausage into a large saucepan; cook over medium heat until no longer pink. Drain. Add the broth, water vegetables and seasonings; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  2. Add spaghetti. Cover and simmer 8-10 minutes longer or until spaghetti and vegetables are tender.
