Italian Sausage Soup and our Menu Plan

A couple weeks ago I told you about the Johnsonville Pastaville Italian Sausage Recipe Contest, and how they are offering cash prizes.

I decided to try my hand at creating a recipe using Johnsville Italian Sausage. This soup tasted really good, it was a little spicy for my taste, but Doug and the boys liked it.

Italian Sausage Soup
  • 1 pound Italian Sausage, cut into pieces and browned
  • 4 cups beef broth (canned or homemade is fine)
  • 1 can (14-15 oz) Italian-styled stewed Tomatoes
  • 1 can (14-15 oz) Northern Beans, undrained
  • 1 cup carrots, sliced
  • ½ cup green peppers, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon each of salt and pepper
  1. Slice and brown Italian Sausage.
  2. Add all ingredients to crockpot and cook on low 8-10 hours or on high 4-5 hours.
  3. Serve with Italian Breadsticks. I found these at Walmart in the bakery, they are Italian Garlic and Herb, and are $3.00 for 12 breadsticks.

Our Menu Plan this week has a little change in it from when I posted our Monthly Menu, I will be going to New York City on Thursday and Friday for the I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter Holiday Bake-Off!! I’m beyond excited!!

Casey and I had fun creating a Texas Longhorns Tatoo for him…

I think next time we need to trim a little closer, but he was happy with how it turned out.

The tatoo paper for the Silhouette is really cool, and remember, you don’t have to own a Silhouette machine to use the supplies.

    Your soup looks great. :)
    I have a Silhouette SD on order.
    Doesn’t the Silhouette cut out the tattoo right up tight to the design?
