One-Pot Italian Sausage Soup

The combination of the 100 Calorie Italian Chicken Sausage and light broth provides lots of delicious flavors without being too heavy. Serve as a main meal or as a side to accompany your main dish.


Ingredients

  • 1 package 100 Calorie Italian Chicken Sausage 12 oz.
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 2 cans beef broth (14 oz.)
  • 1 can Italian-style stewed tomatoes (14.5 oz.)
  • 1 cup sliced carrots
  • 1 can great Northern beans, undrained (14.5 oz.)
  • 2 small zucchinis, cubed
  • 2 cups spinach - packed, rinsed and torn
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Directions

Slice the Italian Chicken Sausage into bite size pieces and then brown in a stock pot. Once browned, add in garlic, broth, tomatoes and carrots and season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in undrained beans and zucchini. Cover and simmer for another 15 minutes, or until zucchini is tender.

Remove from heat and add spinach. Replace lid, allowing heat from the soup to cook the spinach leaves. Soup is ready to serve after 5 minutes. Top with croutons and parmesan cheese if desired.

My son Dave lives in Long Beach, CA and I always take Cher-Make beef summer sausage and hotdogs (per his request) in my suitcase when I visit. It's the only type he (and 4 yr old granddaughter) likes. Do you ship directly from your factory? She turns 4 next week, she wants a desk and summer sausage for her birthday from Grandma. - Susan L.

Cher-Make is excellent! Clean place, friendly people and most of all, awesome food! - Tina D.

This was the first time I purchased your product. I bought 2 packages of your Homegame fully cooked bratwurst. They were great! We roasted them over our campfire and they tasted wonderful!

Every time I visit my parents in Wisconsin I bring home a suitcase full of Summer Sausage, and I make them bring as many sausages as they can fit every time they come visit me. Unfortunately I'm down to my last sausage right now, and I'm months away from another visit. My little girls are going to be so sad without their sausage sandwiches for lunch, and we just can't get anything good out here in California. Keep up the good work, and let me know if you can help us out! - Dave L.

We love Cher-Make ring bologna smothered in sauerkraut! - Sue H.
