I know you are going to love this soup. If you want to make this soup a little lighter, you can use Turkey Italian sausage. The Italian sausage is the most critical flavor of the soup. I suggest that you get the kind that you like the best. The type with a thick fennel flavor are the best ones to get.
When starting out this soup I like to saute all of my vegetables before I add in the meat, I think makes the vegetables caramelize a little more and gives them additional flavor. You should cook this in a slow cooker if you wanted once you get the sausage browned.
