If it comes from Mary Miller-Miller, you know it’s a good recipe.

This Italian Sausage and Sweet Pepper Soup is no exception to that rule.

It’s also a good doable dinner because, like most soups and stews, once it’s in the pot, most of the work is done.

The only thing with this recipe that takes a little time is chopping the fresh vegetables. Really, though, this can be done in about 20 minutes; and, if you’re really pressed for time, you can cheat and buy pre-chopped onions and peppers from one of the high-end grocery stores, like Whole Foods.
