Recipe Review: Italian Sausage Soup

Hello Readers,

How's everybody's Tuesday treating them?  Mine's been pretty good, just got some things done, I organize my pantry and freezer, and got some more stuff in the freezer like pork chops, stew meat and zucchini.  Tomorrow I have a lot more to do, my sweet friend brought me a giant zucchini and a big box of tomatoes, and I want to do lots of things with them!  We also got to take our twins for a walk this evening, which was nice and relaxing, it's nice to get out of the house as a family!
Well as you can assume from the title, this post is about Italian sausage soup.  I found this particular recipe here:  http://pinterest.com/pin/32088216066325819/
So as always, I didn't completely follow this recipe, I didn't add the pepper, why?  Because I used Johnsonville Hot & Spicy Italian Sausage, YUM.  I didn't measure the veggies, but I used a third of a giant zucchini and two large carrots, and a bag of frozen Navy beans.  I also used frozen onions, and garlic powder.  I was in a rush to make this, and I didn't time how long it simmered, but I simmered until the zucchini and carrots were soft enough for our liking.
Italian Sausage Soup

Overall I would say that this was a very simple, and delicious one-bowl meal.  The only thing I would add to it would be some sort of carbohydrate, like a crusty piece of bread or even noodles if you wanted.  This used a big pot, a frying pan, two lids, a cutting board, knife and potato peeler.  I think it would be really good even without the sausage, but we are meat eaters, so what can you do?  Well, if you don't like pork, you could do turkey sausage and I bet that would turn out well too!  So I think everyone should use up their giant zucchinis and put them into this harvest-like soup and enjoy a bowl full of yum.

Soup's on,

Meg
