  • Sicilian Sausage Soup

    Here is one that I found at the Italian Village Restaurant that is located in Daytona Beach, FL

    Sicilian Sausage Soup

    1/4 lb.- sweet or hot sausage, with casing removed
    1- (16oz) can tomatoes (Pastene Kitchen Ready Pref.)
    1/2 c.- finely chopped onion
    1- (13 3/4oz) can regular strength chicken broth
    1/4 c.- peeled and chopped carrots
    1/2 tsp.- dried sweet basil
    1/4 c.- chopped celery
    1/4 c.- Orzo macaroni
    2 Tbsp. - parsley
    salt and pepper to taste

    In a medium skillet, brown the sausage, separating with a fork as it cooks. Remove from skillet with a slotted spoon and place in a large saucepan.

    Sauté onion in the sausage drippings until tender. Remove onion with a slotted spoon and add to the sausage. Add the vegetables, broth, basil to the sausage mixture. Bring the soup to a boil and stir well.

    Cook over moderate heat for 15 minutes. Stir in Orzo and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce the heat to low and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes, or until the Orzo is tender.
