A quick and hearty sweet Italian sausage soup filled with veggies and kale! And no Italian meal is complete with garlic toast! A quick 4 ingredient, garlic toast is perfect to dip into your soup!
You know how you spell comfort? It’s right above. Yup, right thur.
Thank goodness for that woman, as she is my personal editor. Just love those mornings when she sends me a text to pointout a mishap here on the bloggy blog.
Never fails. Despite the countless times I read through the post, I still miss a word.
Like I said, spelling is not my forte. But pictures are! Hence why Instagram reigns supreme to twitter. There are far too many words to skim through during the few minutes I have to even poke my head into the social atmosphere.
Just as pictures are worth a thousand words, this soup is repeating comfort over and over. And over. And over.
We won’t discuss that regardless how it is still summer, the weather in KC is way too chilly for my liking. Therefore, soup season has commenced in our house. Eating soup that makes me feel all warm inside just makes me beam. A feel good sorta meal that I will gladly choose day after day.
Sweet Italian sausage is a guilty pleasure of mine; actually turkey Italian sausage. I adore the sweet version of sausage for its ability to add excitement into any ol’ dish. Add it into a stew with a bit of spice to send your taste buds on a rollercoaster from a bit of heat to sweet notes. Just like in this soup. Oh so delicious!
I made this soup on the stovetop for a quick ‘stovetop to table’ option, but I can’t see why the crockpot wouldn’t work just as well! Just brown the meat beforehand to ensure the flavor boost that yields from the browning comes through. Simply throw the remainder of the ingredients in and let her go!
I can’t leave you today without mentioning the toast. Gah. Oh the toast! A four ingredient flavor bomb. Slice a fresh baguette, spread with butter, sprinkle with garlic salt and load on the shredded parmesan; and be ready for some of the best garlic toast you have ever tasted. The butter melts into the nooks and crannies of the toast. The garlic melds into the butter and the parmesan gets all gooey and golden brown. Whether you add it on top of the soup or dip ‘em in, you can’t go wrong this cheesy garlic toast that takes mere minutes to whip together. And word to wise, make twice as much as you think you will need. They go quickly!
Chilly days, filled with family and friends and probably some football calls for three things, fun, booze and straight up comfort food!
