Ingredients

How to make it

  • Stir fry the sausage in large skillet until no longer pink. Drain.
  • In slow cooker, combine cooked sausage and all remaining ingredients except zucchini and cheese; stir gently to mix.
  • Cover and cook on low setting for 8 hours.
  • Shortly before serving, remove and discard bay leaf from soup. Gently stir in zucchini. Cover; cook an additional 30 minutes or until zucchini is tender.
  • Sprinkle each serving bowl with cheese in the amount desired.
  • Note: I usually buy Italian sausage links and extrude the content into the skillet directly, discarding the casing. For variety you can cut-up a parsnip as a substitute for the carrot, or as an addition to the recipe.

    Hope you are out of Ike's path. Hope others on here are also. Doesn't look good for Galveston or Houston.

    Summer here too, and we've still got Indian summer to go through. So, I'm only getting prepared for soup season. Trying to get my recipes in shape. I like the idea of spinach in this soup. Will give it a try myself.

    Right now, trying to find a good fish recipe for the evening... Searching for something unique.

    I think maybe more of us should sample her recipes, then! hehehe



    I eat a lot of fresh spinach(just don't call me Popeye, cus no canned stuff for me! ;), and a dark green would be SO good in this....

    it's still pretty much summer, here(though we're takin' a break from it thanks to Ike), so soup season hasn't hit, yet...when it does, I'll be makin' this one! With a photo, of course. ;)

    Now. About that lover stuff...

    Tink's been sampling her recipes again Keni... ;-)

    Spinach, or kale, would probably do fine in this. I don't cook with either much (enough). Let me know how it is, if you get to it before I do.

    Butternut? Sure does. Can vouch for that addition.

    Now. About that lover stuff...

    This sounds really good, easy and flavorful - and well, you know that sausage is my good friend of mine. I'm saving this to try in the next month or so. Thanks so much for the heads up, Rottman - and for the great recipe! :) Vickie

    Is that anything like a Latin Lover, mini? ;) Now, if I'm not interrupting anything, here, may I ask a question about the recipe? ;) Rott, this does sound easy and I'll likely try it once "soup season" hits...would you mind if I added some fresh spinach to this? It's sooo good in other similar soups. Thanks for the addition! :) now, you two may carry on...I'm backing out of the room, slowly...hehe
