Love this recipe! Only thing is am I supposed to drain the tomatoes or not? I did last time, was thinking about trying it with the juice this time. Definitely a keeper
I don’t drain them, but you can if you’d like!
This was a really delicious and very hearty soup! It was pleasantly spicy with the hot Italian sausage, and I did use a whole teaspoon of red pepper flakes for a bit more heat. Definitely one I’ll be making again.
I’m so glad you enjoyed it, Helen!
