This soup is a real family favourite - the sausages are loved by the kids but it also keeps the parents happy as it is jam packed with vegetables, what's not to love! The tuscan take on this recipe is really warming and hearty though the flavours are kept relatively simple with just garlic and thyme since the sausages add a lot of the flavour. Serving this with a warm chunk of bread works perfectly to fill you up and to soak up and last bit of soup.
