Another soup recipe? Yep. This Italian Sausage and Roasted Tomato Soup is really good. It’s hearty, comforting, a little bit spicy, and super flavorful. It will fill you up. To quote my husband:
This soup makes me want to wear a dress of roses and frolick in a field of unicorns.
Not sure what that means, but it can’t be bad… right?
The best part about this soup is that nothing comes from a can. (No BPA here, thankyouverymuch.) And the tomatoes are roasted under the broiler so it’s not a recipe that will take you all afternoon to make. Throw in some nourishing chicken broth and delicious (humanely raised) sausage and you have yourself a real food winner.

1. Roast the Tomatoes: Cut your tomatoes into small chunks. Spread onto a sheet pan. Drizzle with Olive Oil and sprinkle with Salt and Pepper. Place under your broiler for 5 – 10 minutes, rotating the pan every couple of minutes. (Keep a close eye on these. The skin should start to look wrinkled, but not burned.)
2. While tomatoes are roasting, chop your onion and mince your garlic.
3. Heat coconut oil in large pot over medium heat. Add sausage and stir until it browns, about 5 minutes.
4. Add onions and garlic. Cook until softened, about 4 – 6 minutes.
5. Add spices, roasted tomatoes, bay leaves, and chicken stock. Stir to combine. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes.
6. Add in pasta and cook until al dente, about 10 – 15 minutes. (Be careful not to overcook pasta as it will get mushy).
7. Salt and pepper to taste. Ladle in bowls. Add grated Parmesan cheese on top.
Eat up. This is good stuff, my friend.
