Spicy vegetable soup with ground turkey for crock pot

We enjoyed this for a spicier version of vegetable soup.....nice for rainy fall days. Nice and spicy especially the longer it cooks.

1 pound of turkey breakfast sausage
1/2 of a package of celery hearts, chopped (divided into 2 piles making each 1/4 of a package)
1 really large onion , chopped
2 tsp of minced garlic

Brown the above 4 ingredients (using only 1 of the piles of celery) until the sausage is done

Meanwhile parboil the following ingredients for 10 to 12 minutes:4-5 good sized red potatoes (with skin left on, chopped ) AND most of a small package of mini carrots (partly chopped and partly whole), the second pile of celery

While all of this is cooking place the following in the crock pot:

1/2 to 2/3 of a Jar of Paul Newman's tomato and basil pasta sauce

1 can Delmonte Zesty mild green chilies diced tomatoes

2 small (5 oz each) cans of low sodium V8

1 can white corn , drained

1 cup or so of frozen baby peas

salt and pepper.

Add all of the browned meat mixture, and vegetable potato mixture to the contents in the crock pot. Add some of the water from the cooked vegetables until the right consistency and flavor is produced. Cook on high one hour and on low for as long as you like, but not more than 5 hours.
