If you passed down my street today, you’d stop and visit . . I know you would. You’d probably pretend you just dropped by to visit me and then you’d ask for a bowl of my yummy soup! Maybe you’d even push your luck and ask for a slice of bread, with some butter! And . . I’d be thrilled to share a bowl of Italian Sausage Soup.
The aroma wafting from my kitchen, through my open windows, will no doubt cause my UPS man and Fed Ex man to ask “what are you cooking?”
Gina shared this recipe on her blog last year and we have it often during the cooler months. Look at the ingredients and if they look like something you think you might like, please give it a try. This is one of the very best soups I’ve ever made. Before serving this, I’ll take half of it out and put it in a bowl for another day. I’ll add half the cheese tortellini today and then I’ll add the other half of the tortellini to the other half right before I serve it. I find that the tortellini gets kinda mushy (you know how pasta does) if it sits in the soup too long.
We were supposed to be having Shipwreck Stew for dinner tonight and Taco Soup for lunch today but Vince told me last night that he won’t be home for dinner tonight so that gave me a chance to re-arrange my plans a bit. There was a package of Italian sausage sitting on the top shelf in my freezer, begging to be cooked and once I remembered Gina’s recipe, I couldn’t stop thinking about this yummy soup. Vince doesn’t know that’s what we’re having for lunch today so he’ll be thrilled when he finds out what we’re having.
