Sausage and Vegetable Soup with only 7 ingredients is a quick and easy dinner you can make in under 30 minutes! Full of fresh veggies and Italian flavor!
In a heavy bottomed pot cook the ground pork over medium-high heat until browned. About 5 minutes. Sprinkle with Italian seasoning, red pepper flakes, and salt. Stir to combine.
While ground pork is cooking cube the potatoes into evenly sized pieces and trim the green beans (cutting off any remaining stem). I prefer to cut my green beans in half so they are more bit sized.
Add potatoes and green beans to the pot and pour in the chicken stock. Turn the heat to high.
Once the soup is boiling reduce the heat to medium and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the potatoes are soft and the green beans are brightly colored.
Serve hot and garnish with fresh basil if desired. This soup makes excellent leftovers and can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
