soup kitchen

it's definitely soup weather here in kc.
rainy and cold. 
my friend had "the girls" over to her house a couple
weeks ago and made us soup.
a kind that i had never had.
italian soup.
so last night i made it for the hubs.
and i'm still loving it.
plus it's real simple.
one of those things where you dump everything
 in a pot and let it go.

ingredients needed:
2 tbsp italian dressing
1 lb. italian sausage
2 cans fat-free chicken broth
1 can (15 oz) cannelloni beans - rinse and drain
1 can italian style diced tomatoes - undrained
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni
1 16 oz pkg frozen stir fry (onion & green/yellow peppers)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

cook sausage in dressing over medium heat. (8-10 mins) add broth, beans, tomatoes and veggies.  bring to a boil.  add macaroni, reduce heat to medium.  cook another 8-10 mins.
serve with cheese sprinkled on top.
it also goes well with a sliced baguette.

mmm mmm good.

(sorry marge, my 7 day food challenge it not going as planned.)


  1. Love it! We made it last week... one tip, it definitely needs 3, maybe 4 cans of chicken broth.

  2. so right, marge. i filled up one of the cans with water and added it.
