|Pumpkin Soup with Turkey Italian Sausage (SOURCE)|
I kid you not, this soup is fantastic. I was shared this recipe with a friend and her husband; he loved it so much he said that if I opened a soup kitchen, he'd eat there every day (he's also had my homemade chicken noodle soup, which is coming soon). Open a soup kitchen? Gladly!! Just provide the financial backing and the health insurance to replace my current job and I'M ON IT!
Here's what you'll need:
Pumpkin Soup with (Turkey) Italian Sausage
1 3-pound Pie Pumpkin
1 Golden Delicious Apple
Fresh Romano cheese
Turkey Italian Sausage
Salt & Pepper
In the printable recipe you'll see that I have suggested using Jennie-O Hot Italian Turkey Sausage, casing removed. I chose this because it's healthier than regular pork sausage, but also because the seasonings in the sausage transfer to the soup very well, providing a lot of heat and flavor. In hindsight, the soup was also probably thick enough to omit the flour and milk to save calories. So, use your best judgment when making this.
I was also surprised how hard it was to cut through the pie pumpkin, so if you have your mister around, take full advantage of his muscles if he is handy in the kitchen.
Happy Sunday Funday!!
