Sausage and Rice Soup

The original recipe for this creation came from the Jennie O Turkey Store website, but I made a ton of changes. So I'm listing my version here.

Sausage and Rice Soup

2 tbsp. olive oil
1 large onion, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 carrots, thinly sliced
1 1b. Italian turkey sausage
2 (13 3/4-ounce) cans reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup frozen peas
2 cups brown rice, cooked

Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add onions, celery and carrots; cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add sausage to saucepan; cook 5 minutes, breaking the meat up. Add broth, water, sage and pepper; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat, add peas and cook 5 minutes. Add rice. Ladle into bowls. Makes 6 servings.
