Vegetable Sausage Soup
Remove sausage from casing and place in large pan; add onion, green pepper, and spices. Cook over medium heat until thoroughly cooked; breaking sausage up with a spoon into small bite-sized chunks. Add chicken broth and stewed tomatoes (breaking up tomatoes into small chunks). Add cut green beans, sliced carrots, and potatoes; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Spoon soup into bowls and top with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
