Hearty and delicious, this Italian sun-dried tomato soup is bursting with classic Italian flavor. Make it ahead for easy entertaining!
Add 5 cups of the broth, carrots, sun-dried tomatoes, fire-roasted tomatoes, salt and pepper to the pot with the onions. Stir with a metal spoon or spatula, scraping up the brown bits (fond) on the bottom of the pot. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook, uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until carrots are very tender.
Return soup to the pot if using a regular blender. Add cream and reserved Italian sausage. Stir well to combine. Taste and add a bit more salt and freshly ground black pepper if needed. Serve warm or allow to cool and store in refrigerator. Soup can also be frozen.
