Italian Soup

This soup my mom found in a cookbook, and it is wonderful. The flavor that this soup has makes you want more. Has all the flavor of garlic, and tomato along with the Italian sausage makes it yummy. Had this yesterday when I hurt my leg and it made me smile ;0). Please try it is really good!
