Creamy Italian Tomato Soup

Creamy Italian Tomato Soup: Savory Sweet and Satisfying

It's pretty common knowledge that you eat with your eyes first, meaning you judge a dish based on how it looks. This is true when looking at recipes online. I see a picture of a dish, then look at the title and decide if I want to see the recipe. After looking at the recipe I then decide if I want to save to make or move on to the next recipe.

Usually the picture and recipe give me a good idea of how the recipe will turn out and taste. However with this soup I was so surprised at how good it tasted. It was absolutely delicious. In my notes on the recipe I actual had delicious capitalized with three exclamation points after it to remind me just how incredibly delicious it was.

Creamy Italian Tomato Soup
Ingredients:
1 pound Italian sausage
1/2 cup diced yellow onion
1 cup diced green pepper
28 ounce can crushed tomatoes
4 cups low sodium chicken broth
2 cups water
2 tablespoons dried basil
8 ounces uncooked rotini pasta
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese
black pepper, to taste

Directions:
In a large pot add the sausage (remove casings if needed) and cook until crumbled and completely cooked. Drain any extra grease. Stir in the onions and peppers and cook for 1-2 minutes or until the veggies start to soften.

Pour in the tomato sauce, broth, water and basil. Bring the mixture to a boil and add in the pasta. Bring the mixture back to a boil and reduce the heat and allow pasta to cook per package directions at a low boil.

Add in the heavy cream and both cheeses and stir until the cheeses have completely melted and fully incorporated. Season with black pepper.

Enjoy!!!
