Jackie's Sausage Soup

"Easy one pot soup that doesn't take a lot of time but tastes like it did. If you prefer, use rice or some other pasta. Feel free to add other chopped vegetables, such as celery and carrots. Great warmed up the next day."

Reduce heat to low, and cook for 30 minutes.

We loved this hearty soup, even my 9 yr. old daughter loved it. I added rice instead of orzo, and low sodium broth. I will definately make this again.
