That’s a mouthful! And a very good one, at that. LOVED this soup. I used ground turkey instead of beef.
Roasted tomato soup with ground turkey, sausage, garbanzos, pasta, and basil (another winner from Kalyn’s Kitchen)
1 large onion, chopped in 1/2″ pieces
1 tablespoon minced garlic
4 teaspoons olive oil, divided
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup tomato sauce
1 cup roasted tomatoes, diced (fresh or canned)
2 teaspoons dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon ground fennel
2 links spicy Italian chicken sausage
1/2 pound ground turkey
1 cup water, to deglaze pan
1 can garbanzo beans, drained
1/2 cup macaroni (I used wagon wheels – just happened to have some handy)
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
Heat 2 teaspoons olive oil in large frying pan, add onions and saute about 5 minutes, then add garlic and saute 2 – 3 minutes more.
While onions are cooking, combine stock, tomato sauce, roasted tomatoes, dried basil, dried oregano, and fennel in a large soup pot and start to simmer. Add onions and garlic to soup pot.
In same frying pan you cooked onions and garlic, brown ground turkey and turkey sausage (removed from casings) until cooked through, about 10 minutes. Break up into small pieces while cooking. When done, add the turkey and sausage to soup pot. cover pot and simmer on very low heat for one hour.
After an hour, add beans and simmer uncovered for 20 – 30 minutes. Add pasta and simmer 30 minutes longer (you may have to add a bit of extra water, depending on how tightly the lid fits on your pot). When the pasta is done, add chopped fresh basil and cook 5 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 6 – 8 servings.
