This quick and easy creamy Italian sausage soup recipe taste’s like the soup I order at the Olive Garden with those yummy breadsticks and all the salad you can eat. I love making any soup and letting it simmer on the stove while the room smells fabulous with soup aroma, I guess you could call it. I make some bread and I’m good to go with this easy to make soup. It’s great for adding some of those leftovers of mushrooms, extra Kale or spinach hiding in the refrigerator. Who doesn’t love a hot steaming bowl of soup with a slice of hot bread with butter slathered on it? I know Mark and I do!

I know the pressure cookers and the new Instant Pot are very popular and I love cooking with those. But, I really love cooking with a Lodge Dutch oven like this one on the top of my stove: Lodge EC6D43 Enameled Cast Iron Dutch Oven, 6-Quart, Island Spice Red. I am going to start doing more giveaways after the first of the year and, depending on availability, this Dutch Oven may be one of the giveaways! Let me know if any of you would use it, I would love to know.

The thing I like about this Italian sausage soup is the fact that I can stretch the recipe to serve more people just by adding a few extra leftovers I have in the refrigerator! Do you have a favorite soup you like to make on a cold, chilly night? This is when I wish I had a fireplace or woodburning stove, those were the good old days! May God bless you and your family for being prepared for the unexpected with one #10 can at a time. One gallon of water a week is awesome too!

    Hi Linda,

    Yes, I would absolutely use the cast iron Dutch oven, a whole lot, if I had one. I make soups all winter; winter is cold in northern Maine! And I love soups. We cook with propane which burns hotter than natural gas, and unfortunately we have a cheap and nasty kitchen stove. It’s difficult to moderate the heat; everything tends to burn. I use a stainless steel stew pot now, but it’s not like cast iron!

    Cheers,
    Pat

  2. I love this soup. I made this for my mom when she was going through her chemo treatments as it was the only food she could taste and she loved it.

    • Hi Judy, I’m glad to hear that she enjoyed this soup during her chemo treatments. I’m sorry to hear she had to go through that. May God bless you and you mom! Hugs! Linda

    Geez Louise! Where did you learn to good like this?? I can not wait until I can get this in my pot. You are such a sweet heart. Hey! Happy New Year Mlady!!!
    I am pretty sure Jim and I will be slurping up this yummy soup instead of doing the jig in the bars. Sound like more fun to me.
    Hope you are doing well. Prayers are always coming your way for you and your family. Let’s have a blessed 2017 for sure.

    • Hi Vivian, your statement Leen-da gave me the giggles because my kids call me that when they want my attention! Happy New Year, enjoy the hot inexpensive soup! Hugs!! Linda

  4. This looks delicious! I’ll be expecting you to bring me some soon. LOL Happy New Year!

  5. I have a dutch oven similar to the Lodge and love the versatility of stove top to oven use. It’s the weight of it that sometimes bothers me especially wielding it’s heft and size in the kitchen sink. This recipe definitely sounds delicious enough to wrestle it around though. I am a recent convert to the instant pot and soups are so easy in it without hurting my wrists. Looking forward to all your posts in 2017!

    • Hi Ellen, I tell you making soups stretches my food budget. I do not know how people are buying groceries these days. I’m going to try using a smaller Dutch oven for the stove because yes they are very heavy!!! Happy New Year! Linda
