“The perfect low-fat comfort soup on a cold winter's day. I improvised this from looking at Italian Sausage Soup recipes. My husband and guests couldn't stop raving about it. I used Roasted Garlic diced tomatoes (Italian flavor would work) and Flame Broiled frozen Turkey meatballs from Trader Joe's.”
