    Soup, soup, soup!

    I’ve been in a real soup making mood lately. Two weekends ago it was Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup, then last weekend I made up a Mexican Chicken and Rice Soup and Baked Potato¬†Soup. All so good and so different. Enjoy! **** Italian sausage and white bean soup – My boys both love sausage, so I try to use it pretty frequently. I made this a couple of months ago for the first time and shared it with my neighbors. They loved it and I loved it, and I’ve been a slacker for waiting this long to post the recipe – sorry guys! ūüôā Italian Sausage and White Bean…

    Sausage and Goat Cheese Stuffed Shells

    Simple Sausage Marinara

    This dish is a simple 30-minute homemade marinara that is a go-to for a weeknight meal. ¬†Both of my boys love Italian sausage, so I’ve been using it in place of beef in a lot of my Italian dishes. ¬†I used Publix’s Greenwise Italian Chicken Sausage and it was really good. ¬†This dinner was a success – ¬†I didn’t have to spend the whole evening in the kitchen and the boys cleaned their plates.

    Sausage and Peppers Spaghetti

    This is one of my favorite pasta dishes! ¬†It’s not your typical spaghetti – it’s full of fresh veggies, made with sausage and I like mine with angel hair. ¬†This recipe makes a pretty large pot; plenty to feed a family and have leftovers too (I love leftovers!). ¬†It’s pretty easy to make and can be done in around 30 to 40 minutes. ¬†Me and the boys had this for dinner tonight, and after Brogan was done, he asked, “Can we have this again tomorrow?” ¬†Dinner win! Sausage and Peppers Spaghetti 1 lb angel hair pasta 1 lb Italian sausage (I use Publix Greenwise Sun-dried Tomato Chicken Sausage) 1 tbsp…
