  • Combine the butter and flour in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Gradually add the chicken broth letting the mixture thicken as you add more.
  • In a blender add the two cans of tomatoes (don't drain) and the basil and oregano. Pulse it just a few times (you don't want the tomatoes totally blended). Add this tomato mixture to the sauce pan. Now let it all simmer over medium heat for about 15 min.
  • Meanwhile shape the italian sausage into small meatballs and thoroughly cook them in a fry pan, then move the sausage to a plate lined with paper towels and pat off excess grease.
  • Turn the heat on the soup to low. Whisk in the parmesan cheese and half and half, then add the sausage and let it cook on low for about 5 more min, stirring occasionally.
