Italian sausage soup is one of my favorite simple suppers. It's delicious, satisfying, and full of nutrients. Plus, it's a cinch to make!
Sautee in a large soup pot:
1 or 2 cloves of chopped garlic
A little olive oil
2 cups cooked, diced Italian sausage
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, cut into quarters
1 large bag of frozen spinach
A sprinkling of hot red pepper flakes
Sautee until heated through.
2 quarts chicken stock (I use homemade)
Bring to a rolling boil.
1 lb of pasta (I use rotini)
Boil ten minutes, or until pasta is tender.
Serve with a sprinkling of parmesan cheese.
One bowl of this tasty soup makes a complete meal. However, Donnie and I like to have homemade garlic breadsticks on the side!
