Mom's Italian Supper Soup

6 links hot Italian sausage
2 medium onions chopped
3 cloves garlic minced
1 large can Italian tomatoes
1 red bell pepper, chopped
2 zucchinis, peeled and sliced
1 cup cooked pasta
2 cups red wine
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp thyme

Cut up sausage and brown. Drain fat from pan and remove sausage to another bowl. Add a bit of olive oil and cook the onions and garlic thoroughly. Return sausage to the pan. Add the tomatoes, mash, add herbs-include salt and pepper. Add the wine and simmer as long as you have time for...I did about 40 minutes. Then add the bell pepper, zucchini and pasta for another 15 to 20 minutes. I actually cooked the pasta al dente and then added the last 5 minutes of cooking so it would not be over cooked when you reheat it.
Serve with grated parmesan and a nice crusty bread.

Super yummy and comforting during this cold grey weather:)
