PREPARATION:
* Peel the linguica and slice into 1/4 inch rounds. Cook in a skillet or microwave just long enough to remove the fat. No longer than 2 minutes on high in the microwave.
* In a large stock pot or soup pot add the olive oil and saute the onions, garlic and bell pepper until the onions are translucent. Add all the other ingredients except for the mashed potato flakes. Simmer the soup for about 2 hours, stirring occasionally. Add the mashed potato flakes to thicken the soup to a desired consistency.
