2 cups broccoli florets

2 small yellow squash, halved lengthwise and sliced

One 28-ounce can no-salt-added diced tomatoes

5 cups low-sodium vegetable broth

5 cups water

3 tablespoons liquid aminos (or gluten-free tamari; use coconut aminos to be soy-free)

2 teaspoons dried basil

2 teaspoons dried thyme

2Add the carrot, celery, fennel, and mushrooms and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.

3Add the broccoli, squash, tomatoes and their liquid, broth, water, liquid aminos, basil, thyme, oregano, paprika, and cayenne pepper and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer and cook for about 10 minutes.

4 Add the pasta, beans, and peas and simmer until the pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes.

5Add the sausage crumbles, kale, salt, and pepper. Remove from the heat and serve immediately.
