Short-Cut Minestrone Soup

It is nice to have a recipe that can be thrown together quickly on a busy day, and even better if it is healthy.  This minestrone soup fits this criteria as well as tasting great and having beautiful color.

1 (9.6 oz) bag Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Turkey Sausage Crumbles
1 cup diced onion (I use frozen chopped onion, always ready, no tears)
2 stocks celery, chopped
1 (10 oz) Fresh Express Angel Hair Shredded Cabbage
1 small zucchini, chopped
1 (15 oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (10 oz) can garbanzo beans
1 (7 oz) can corn
1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
3 cups chicken broth
1 tsp season salt
1/2 tsp dried basil
3 Tbl worchestershire
1/2 cup small pasta

In large soup pot, cook and stir sausage, onion, celery, cabbage, and zucchini over medium high heat for approx. 10 minutes, until cabbage wilts down.  Add remaining ingredients, bring to boil, then reduce to simmer and cook another 10 minutes.  Serve with your favorite cheese.
