Recipe Swap Wednesday-Italian Soup

Wow, it's Wednesday already and I'm barely getting around to posting. What's super exciting about this is that, as of this point in the post, I haven't decided on what recipe to post. Hmmmm....what to post, what to post. I think I'll go with what I made for dinner last night since it's fresh in my memory. This particular recipe started out as an Italian Sausage Soup. It was a recipe that I had been wanting to try and so I jumped right in and realized later, of course, that I didn't actually have all, or even half, of the ingredients. Surprising, I know!! And did I mention that I was also taking the soup into a neighbor who had recently had a baby?! I always seem to do that...making something I've never made before to take to someone else because that's the best time to try out a new recipe! *sigh* So here is what I ended up with.

Food Storage Rotation Italian Soup!
5 cups chicken broth
1 can of corn
1 can of green beans
1 can of carrots
1 can of kidney beans
1 can diced tomatoes-undrained (I use the kind with garlic, but if using plain diced tomatoes add a clove of garlic, chopped)
1 tsp. rosemary herb seasoning (I use a seasoning mix, but the seasoning listed for the original recipe are:1 tsp. basil, 1 tsp rosemary & 1/4 tsp. dried sage)
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 onion, chopped
1 package Polska Kelbasa, about a pound, chopped
1 cup pasta shells

Combine all ingredients, except the pasta, in a large crockpot and let simmer. About a half hour or so before dinner add the pasta shells. They can be cooked seperately and then added to the soup, if you would prefer.

That's it! This recipe is great with homemade biscuits if you're feeling ambitious. I'll eventually find the perfect biscuit recipe and pass it on. I'm adding the Mr. Linky thingy here in case anyone should get an out of control urge to swap a recipe. It's looks a little more complicated than it actually is, but I totally dare you to try it. I double dog dare you!! ;o)

Happy recipe swapping!
