“This recipe is a little bit different than all the other Italian Sausage Soup recipes that I see posted here. While it is rather rustic in appearance, it tastes elegant enough for entertaining. A pot of this on the stove, a crusty loaf of bread, and a nice glass of wine will soothe your soul on any winter night!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine beef stock and steak sauce in large soup pot. Bring to a boil, then simmer.
  2. Meanwhile, in large skillet, heat oil and add sausage links. Fry until browned on all sides, turning often. Cool sausages and slice 1/4-inch thick. Drain all but 2 T. fat from skillet.
  3. Add sausage slices, onions, green pepper, and garlic to skillet. Saute until onions are tender, but not browned. Add sausage mixture to stock mixture in soup pot.
  4. Add wine, tomatoes, zucchini, basil, oregano, and parsley. Bring to a boil again. Add pasta and simmer until pasta is tender, about 12 minutes, stirring soup occasionally. Season with salt and pepper, then top with shredded cheese.
  5. Note: Add more beef stock if a thinner soup is desired.
