This happens to be what I’m cooking tonight, in fact. Easy & yummy, any time of year.
14.5 oz can chicken broth
1 cup water
1/2 tsp dried Italian seasoning, crushed
1 cup dried rotini (corkscrew) pasta
2 cups loose-pack frozen zucchini, carrots, cauliflower, lima beans and Italian green beans
14.5 oz can diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
8 oz cooked smoked turkey sausage, halved lengthwise and sliced
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tsp sugar
Combine broth, water, and Italian seasoning in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; add pasta. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 8 minutes.
Stir in frozen vegetables, tomatoes with juice, sausage, lemon juice and sugar. Return to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer 5 minutes longer or until vegetables and pasta are tender.
