In a soup kettle or Dutch oven over medium heat, brown the sausage and onion. Slowly add the potatoes, carrots, water, parsley, basil, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and let simmer for 15 to 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add remaining ingredients, cook 5 to 10 minutes longer or until heated through. You can replace whole milk for the evaporated milk, if you prefer.
