I like to lighten up.
Mild Italian sausage. Cook and shred.
Stems and pieces are perfect.
Again, I lighten up. Use half this container or all to make the soup richer. I never measure.
Combine all ingredients. Add as much water as you like. Salt and pepper to taste. Oh.... Be sure to cook it! I love a crock pot!
You can make this a vegetarian dish and you can also serve over egg noodles. Yummy comfort dish! Enjoy!
