Ingredients

  • 8 ounces Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3 celery ribs, chopped
  • 1 carrot, chopped
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 15-oz. can diced tomatoes with juice

Preparation

  1. 1. In a large pot over medium heat, cook sausage, stirring and breaking up with a wooden spoon until no traces of pink remain, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer meat to paper towels; drain fat from pot. Add olive oil, onion, garlic, celery and carrot and cook, stirring, until vegetables have softened, 6 to 8 minutes.
