Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons olive oil (or more, depending on your pan)
  • 1 onion (chopped small)

  • 1/2 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme

  • 1 teaspoon fennel seed (ground, optional, but this really adds to the flavor)
  • 19 1/2 ounces italian sausage (hot turkey, check the label to find turkey Italian sausage with less than 10% fat for South Beach Diet)

This has to be one of the best soups I have ever made. I made a big batch for lunches for the upcoming week and my husband and I had a bowl for lunch. This is super yummy the right amount of spice and the flavors go so well together.
