Quick Vegetable Soup

I whipped this soup up on a whim with ingredients that I had on hand. That is the beauty of soup, you can add and subtract ingredients and still get a great result. When I opened my refrigerator today before lunch I had one cup of cooked multi grain pasta, some random veggies and Italian sausage. One half hour later I ca up with a flavorful, healthy, vegetable soup. Here is the recipe, but feel free to make it your own with ingredients that you have.

1/4 pound Ground Italian Sausage
3 cups Chicken Stock
1 can Petite Diced Tomatoes
1 cup Zucchini, small diced
1 Carrot, small diced
1 Small Potato, small diced
1 cup Cabbage, chopped
1 cup Pasta, cooked
Kosher Salt and Pepper to taste
Pinch of Cayenne Pepper

Cook sausage in a medium sized saucepan, if there is an excess of grease, drain it. Add stock, canned tomatoes (with juice), and veggies. Simmer until vegetables are tender. If you have cooked the pasta ahead, add it then cook for another five minutes. If you would like, add the uncooked pasta in with the veggies and simmer until all are tender. Season to taste.
