Farmhouse Smoked Sausage Soup

Well this may not be exactly old-fashioned but it sure is a satisfying soup and serves as a little different than the norm.

1lb Smoked Sausage {I used Eckrich Smoked Sausage}
1 onion, diced
1 can dark red kidney beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes
1 cup or so Beef Broth
abt 1 or 2 cups mixed frozen veggies
Half of a 7oz package of small pasta Shells
abt 1/8th teaspoon Italian Seasoning
abt 1/8th teaspoon Oregano
Few Shakes Worcestershire Sauce
Few Shakes Tabasco Sauce
salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon butter

First dice onion and saute well with butter in soup pot. You shouldn't have much if any excess butter, to this add the beef broth and mix around. Then add the can fire roasted tomatoes. Add a little water to take out the concentrated look of the tomatoes. Next add the kidney beans, smoked sausage {cut up in slices}, mixed veggies, seasonings, few shakes Worcestershire and Tabasco sauce. Salt and pepper to taste. Then finally add the shells and let cook on medium heat until shells are soft. Then turn down to low and simmer until desired taste.

Note: Sorry for a lack of exact measurements...when I cook on my own I don't always measure things out.
