|Sausage Soup Simmering - Mmm!|
It's just the best to have a hearty soup ready to defrost waiting in the freezer! Yes, Bertucci's does offer this soup on its menu, but I find their soup consists mostly of broth. Nothing beats a hearty Sausage Soup. And the cook controls the salt content!
Now, whenever I make this, I add about 12 oz. of defrosted Green Beans. Green Beans are a fave in my fam, so I add them in whenever and in whatever meal I can.
1 lb. Italian Sweet Sausage - removed from casings
4 cans (14.5 oz. each) College Inn Light & Fat Free Chicken Broth
1 can (14 - 20 oz.) Diced or Whole Tomatoes, drained
1 box chopped frozen Spinach, thawed
1 Cup White Rice, uncooked
1 lb. Baby Carrots (rinsed)
1/4 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
1 pkg. (10 - 14 oz.) defrosted Green Beans - optional
- Remove Sausage from casings and brown in skillet.
- Break Sausage into pieces while it is browning.
- Place all remaining ingredients into large pot or Dutch Oven.
- Add browned Sausage.
- Bring all ingredients to a simmer.
- Simmer about 45-60 minutes until Rice has cooked.
*When reheating, a 14.5 oz. can of College Inn Light & Fat Free Chicken Broth is added to the defrosted contents while the soup reheats on my stove. The Rice has absorbed the liquid.
*Update: Our neighborhood is lookin' good after this welcome sight yesterday!
