Carino's Italian chili recipe wanted

This may be a longshot as I've searched on the Internet and come up empty.
We had a delicious item at Johnny Carino's restaurant yesterday when we went in for the AYCE soup, salad and bread. The Italian chili was one of the soups. It was a rather thin tomato based soup that consisted of crumbled Italian sausage, white beans, green and red peppers, regular onion and possibly green onion. All the veggies were finely chopped. There was definitely Basil in there and whatever other seasonings were used I couldn't identify. There was a light amount of Parmesan sprinkled
over the top.
I did find one recipe that said it tasted like Carino's chili but the ingredients were totally different from what we had so I don't think that was it.

    It's a chain. I don't know how many or where. We were at the Johnson City, TN location.

    ces,
    A friend of mine works in the kitchen at the JC location. I'll ask him about it the next time I see him.
