Italian Sausage Soup

Jennifer and Dave This recipe is a Schmidt-family favorite. Dave's Dad found it decades ago, perhaps in the newspaper; maybe in a magazine. Regardless of where, this soup stands the test of time. Once introduced to the Palmer side, they all requested the recipe. Yes, it is that good
