This Italian sausage pastina soup is delicious and simple to make. Using canned tomatoes and frozen vegetables cuts down on prep time so it’s perfect for busy weeknights.
To remove excess oil after browning the sausage: Take the pot off the heat. Pile the browned sausage to one side of the pot and tip it slightly so the oil pools opposite the meat. Use a ladle or large spoon to scoop most (or all) of it out. Then level the pot, place it back over the heat and continue with the recipe.
