Roasted Tomato Soup with Sausage and Veggies

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!  We are doing pretty good.  We are just enjoying some Halloween festivities and the weather is finally getting cool here.  I tell my friends and family every year that it stays warm until Halloween every year.  They never believe me

Speaking of cooler weather, I wanted to share a recipe for one of our favorite soups with you.  In my house, we call this Amy Soup because my friend Amy taught me how to make it.  I asked her if I could share this recipe with you on my blog and she said yes.  :)
Roasted Tomato Soup with Sausage and Veggies

1 pint grape tomatoes
2 cartons chicken broth
1/2 box of pasta
1 turkey sausage ring
2 zucchinis
1 package mushrooms
olive oil
soy sauce
Worcestershire sauce
liquid smoke
red pepper flakes (optional)

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Line a cookie sheet with foil.  Drizzle olive oil on the cookie sheet.  Add washed and dried tomatoes to the cookie sheet, roll around in oil.  Season with salt.  Roast until tomatoes burst.
3. Take some garlic (I use 3 cloves) and wrap in foil with a little olive oil.  Roast this on the sheet with the tomatoes, taking it out after about 10 mins.  Peel and set aside.
4. Cut up turkey sausage and brown in a large pot.  Add chicken broth.  Bring to boil.
5. Cut up veggies.  I use zucchini and mushrooms but you can use any veggies you like.  Add to soup.
6.  Season soup with soy sauce, Worcestershire, and liquid smoke to taste.  Add garlic.
7.  Add pasta and cover pot.  I used to be able to buy small bow tie pasta but they stopped making it.  I prefer a small pasta but will use regular bow ties in a pinch.
8. When the tomatoes are done, scrape them into the pot.  Then taking the hot broth and ladle it over the cookie sheet, scraping up any of the juices from the burst tomatoes that have cooked onto the foil.  Dump all this back in the pan.
9.   The soup is done when your veggies are tender and your pasta is cooked.  Enjoy!

Have a great day, friends!
