In the attempt to clean out the pantry, this was one of the first things on my list of recipes. This soup mix came in one of our Viansa deliveries.

Yes it is a soup mix, but i had to add quite a few things to it.
Italian Sausage, carrots, celery, onions, garlic. Canned tomatoes & tomato paste, chicken broth & red wine.
It took a good 3 hours to make this soup mix.
But it was well worth it in the end.
Its a very hearty soup, definetly a meal in & of itself.
Plus its great for these gloomy days. I topped it off with a little pecorino cheese.
