Italian Sausage Soup Recipe

One of the best ways to stick to a budget is to cook the majority of your meals at home. In order to succeed at this, it’s important to have a handful of quick, easy recipes on hand. The more that you cook at home, the more that you’ll find that you don’t need to follow recipes to the letter. It can be fun to experiment! Some of my favorite meals have been those that I have thrown together based on what I had on hand in my pantry and fridge. (See: 10 Frugal Kitchen Staples)

This delicious Italian Sausage Soup recipe came to be on one of those nights – where I had to throw something together fast using what I had on hand. It is sure to hit the spot on a cold winter night! My 4 kids even ate it without complaining (or picking out the spinach) – I consider that a win!

If you don’t like spicy foods, a sweet Italian sausage would work well too. And if you happen to have leftovers, you can freeze this to re-heat at a later date. Tip: I like to freeze soup in gallon-size freezer bags, laying them flat and lightly pressing out the air for extra freshness.
