a cold, long winter day should always end with a bowl of hot, homemade soup. and this year, I’ve taken “always” quite literally. and it just so happens to be the same recipe I have on repeat. I’ve perfected it with each attempt. and at this point, its hit maximum potential. so I’m ready to share. it’s not life altering. it’s simple, and that’s why I love it.
the true test .. does [J] still love it? because honestly he’s had it for dinner practically once a week since the first cold day.
• cheese tortellini • 1 lb italian sausage • 1/2 onion • 2 garlic cloves • frozen veggies [corn + broccoli] • 1/2-1 cup salsa verde • black pepper • 12 cups chicken broth • 4 cups water •
with a very large soup pot + these ingredients, you’re close to dinner time.
• brown 1lb italian sausage. I use spicy • drain • add and sauté onions + garlic. approximately two mins • add frozen veggies. corn + broccoli • add 12 cups chicken broth • 4 cups water • 1/2 to 1 cup salsa verde • season with black pepper. maybe a little italian seasoning • bring to a boil • add tortellini + cook to directions on package • now ..enjoy! •
it is best enjoyed on a cold, winter night. maybe curled up on the couch, watching a good movie. potentially in front of a warm fire. or you could just eat at the dinner table.
