How To Make Italian Sausage Soup
Step One: Sausage
Starting with browning the Italian sausage. Purchase ground Italian sausage if you can find it at your local grocery store. If only the sausage links are available, you can slit the casing and remove the sausage inside.
Italian sausage is available in mild or hot. I used the mild for my family but if your family likes spicy sausage, use the hot one or a combination of the two.
Use a large pot to brown the sausage and reduce the number of dishes that need to be cleaned afterwards.
Step Two: Onions, Peppers, and Garlic
After draining the sausage, using the same pot to saute the diced onions, diced red peppers, and garlic. Return the pot to the heat and melt the butter.
Add the diced onions, diced red peppers, and garlic. Saute over medium heat for 4-5 minutes until tender.
Sprinkle with flour and stir to coat. Cook for about one minute, stirring constantly.
Then, stir in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil.
Step Three: Noodles
Once the soup is boiling, stir in the Reames Frozen Egg Noodles. Return the soup to a boil and cook for 20 minutes, stirring often until the noodles are fully cooked.
If you prefer to use another kind of noodles in this recipe, reduce the cooking time. Boil until the noodles are tender.
I’ve got to share a little experience from the grocery store. When I was buying the ingredients for this Italian Sausage Soup, the woman bagging her groceries directly across from me leaned over to tell me that she loves Reames Frozen Egg Noodles.
She said it’s what she always uses to make her chicken noodle soup and that they are the best noodles. I really enjoy all of the interesting people I meet and food conversations I get into at the grocery store!
Step Four: Finishing the Soup
Once the noodles have finished cooking, stir in the sausage, cream, and spinach. Cook for several minutes until heated through.
Step Five: Garnish
Add black pepper to taste and serve with shredded parmesan.
