Yeah, I have to agree with xxstardust -- if you cook some good sausage in the pan before adding your veggies to saute, you'll get some great flavor, plus a meat component if you have someone who believes dinners require meat (my bf).

I'm kinda amused that you read diabetic living :) This looks really good and I love making hearty yummy soups like this. On a cold winter day they really just hit the spot.

This looks delish! I bet you could add a little bit of spicy Italian sausage to it and have it turn out great, too.
