Finally feeling like Fall? Now it's time to put away all those cold foods and start making some down home comfort food! This is my sausage soup that I have been making for years, and everyone loves it. It's hearty, warm and cozy! :)


  • 1 lb Italian sweet sausage, remove casings
  • 1 medium onion*, chopped
  • 3 stalks celery, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 3-4 carrots, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chunk cut
  • 1 red pepper, chunk cut
  • 1 large bag washed spinach
  • 2 cans (14 oz) tomatoes, diced
  • 2-3 cartons (32 oz) chicken broth (for a thinner soup use 3)
  • 2 cups water
  • fresh shredded Parmesan cheese for topping
  • 1/2 cup orzo

*For the chopped veggies, I use a mini food processor.


  1. Remove the casings from the sweet Italian sausage. Put it in a large soup pot on med-high. Stir rapidly until the sausage is broken into small pieces and cooked. Add 1/2 cup of the water when the meat is starting to brown.
  2. Add all your chopped and chunked vegetables and stir well. Loosen the darkened pieces from the bottom of the pan for flavor.
  3. Add chicken broth, tomatoes and all seasonings.
  4. Add remaining water after the soup has been simmering down awhile.
  5. Ad

  6. Add spinach and let simmer. Add orzo pasta about 1 hour before serving. If the orzo tends to thicken the soup at the end too much, or
    when heating leftovers, just add water and simmer.
  7. While soup is simmering, prepare a package of Pilsbury Grands flaky biscuits. Top them with a mixture of melted butter (4 Tbsp), a sprinkle of garlic, dried basil and black pepper. Brush this across the top and turn over and brush the bottoms. Bake as directed.

Sorry about that! 1/2 cup of Orzo pasta. If this thickens your broth too much to your liking, add extra water and simmer.


And same thing when reheating leftovers... Thank you for noticing my error.. Have a nice day! You will love this soup! :)

Unlike other squash soups made with apples and other sweet ingredients, this one is savory, full of wonderful fall flavor and hearty enough to keep your family full and happy! This recipe is high in vitamin A and C, and loaded with fiber too!


  • 1 lb. bulk sausage, or bratwursts with skins removed
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 medium-sized butternut squash, peeled, seeded, and cubed
  • 1 stick butter or margarine
  • 1 1/2 cups milk, or mix with half-and-half or cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. white pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg


Brown sausage and onion in skillet, drain and set aside.

While sausage is cooking, place cubed squash in an extra-large pot and cover with water.


Bring to a boil and then simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain about half the water, leaving 2-3 cups of liquid in the pot with the squash. You can save the drained liquid and use as a vegetable broth for another recipe later.

Using a potato masher, or a hand-puree device, lightly mash the squash cubes. Do not completely puree. Add in butter, milk, spices, and sausage/onions. Bring to a boil then simmer for 20 minutes, stirring often so it doesn't stick.

Servings: 8
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Cooking Time: 40 Minutes

I am on a sodium restricted diet, but I refuse to give up foods I like, such as Italian sausage. I work them into my daily amount of sodium allowed, as with this soup.

Cut sausage diagonally into 1 inch pieces. Brown on both sides in skillet; drain off fat. Place broth in saucepan.


Bring to a boil. Add tomatoes, carrots, onion, celery, green pepper, mushrooms, and potatoes.

Brown sausage, onion, green pepper and celery. Drain any fat. Pour chicken broth, and vegetables into a soup pot and spoon in browned sausage and vegetables. Add additional water if needed to increase liquid level.
