  • 2 pounds Premio Italian sausage (remove casings)
  • 2 tablespoons dried Italian herbs
  • 1 medium onion - diced
  • 2 carrots - diced
  • 1 stalk celery - diced
  • 2 cloves garlic - crushed
  • 1 can plum tomatoes (16 oz. can)

  • 2 teaspoons black pepper
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese - grated.
Directions
  • In large stockpot, add 1 tablespoon olive oil and heat gently.
