Italian Sausage soup is hearty, full of flavor, and deliciously filling on a cold night.
One of my favorite things about fall is making soup again. Our evenings here in Portland are cooling off, which means I’m ready for soup. I attended a bridal shower last week and they served two different types of soup. I loved them both and today’s recipe for Italian Sausage soup was one of the soups that they served. It is full of yummy vegetables, plus it has some body to it with pasta, beans and sausage. It is hearty enough for my husband to consider it a meal without being too heavy.
I had a meeting at my house this week so I made up a big pot of this soup to serve. It makes a lot so it is a great thing to make when you are making dinner for your family and taking dinner to someone else! We had enough for lunch, some for my husband for dinner and then plenty to share with some friends. It will serve 10-12 people easily.
I served it with some nice crusty bread and a green salad and it made a delicious lunch and dinner!
