Sausage, Broccoli, and Bell Pepper Soup
with mixed olives

Active: 40 minTotal: 40 min

This easy soup is loaded with color and nutrients thanks to a blend of bright vegetables. Be sure to chop the vegetables small so you get some in each spoonful.
Smarts: If you like spicy foods, a good spicy Italian sausage is great here, or just add red pepper flakes until it's spiced to your liking.

My 3 year old ate every bite on her plate and declared that she LOVED this dinner. We are pandemic cooking so used mixed frozen veggies (cauliflower, broccoli, and carrots) which worked surprisingly well. Great pantry staples meal!

Pretty good - though I added some different spices and left out the beans!

Beans were hard to get used to, but helped it to be filling! I would love to mess with this recipe because overall I did like it a lot! So did roommate!

Doubled the panko crumbs per suggestions. Agree that needs some more spice to it.

I used half the butter for the breadcrumbs. We loved the Mac and cheese (even the beans!!). The pepper was the main flavor I tasted when eating it. I'd like to try it again with different vegetables.

Easy and good. Needs another spice or something to give it a little more zip.
