Tomato Sausage Soup ver. 2.0

This is my tomato sausage soup, after about two years of making it monthly and tweaking it as I went along. This is the recipe that's actually printed out on paper and next to the stove in the 'go-to' pile now.


Ingredients:
* 1 pound hot Italian sausage
* 1 pound medium Italian sausage
(note - if you don't like spicy heat, use all medium or garlic sausage)
* 1 sweet onion, chopped
* 2 (14 ounce) cans petite cut or diced tomatoes (do NOT drain!)
* 6 cups (or 2x26oz) stock - I use beef and chicken, home-made is best, but store bought is OK
* 2 tablespoons basil (or italian spice mix, if you have that)
* 2 cups pasta - I use egg noodles, but you can also use spirals, penne, whatever
* about 5 whole garlic cloves, minced
* 1 cup chopped celery
* 1 cup chopped carrots
* 1 cup chopped mushrooms (fresh is best)
* 1 1/2 - 2 cups shredded cabbage
* black pepper to taste

As usual, I prep all my ingredients before starting to cook. I like having everything laid out so I don't wind up missing something. The cat wandered in and decided to supervise...she is so spoiled rotten it isn't even funny.



Here it is, all portioned out. I like using paper plates (disposable/recyclable/compostable) to hold things.



Directions:

1. In a soup pot, cook sausage over medium heat until no pink remains. Stir often, using medium high heat. Only put a wee bit of olive oil in the pan for the start...fat will cook off quickly and prevent further sticking.



2. Add onions, mushrooms, celery, and carrots. Cook uncovered until onions and celery are soft. I cook a minute, stir the whole mess, cook another minute, stir vigorously, cook another minute, stir, etc. Takes 8-10 minutes for it to all cook down.



3. Add tomatoes (including juice), stock, cabbage, garlic, and basil. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer for about 50ish minutes, stirring every 10. Yes, this will look vaguely like one of satan's bowel movements. Trust me, your patience will be rewarded.



4. Stir in pasta and cover. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until pasta is tender to your liking.



Season with salt & pepper to taste. Serve.

Wesley - I don't have a hibachi recipe to help out, but maybe try searching google for ideas and recipes to start with?

Everything has been looking really good here the last few days!

Simple breakfast burrito... eggs, cheese, potatoes.... called the "Country" burrito at Filiberto's here in Phoenix.

Thanks man. I figured that would be easiest maybe. But I just figured I'd see if anyone had any experience with it.
