Every year, I like to make a savory pumpkin dish. This year, I made this Sausage & Pumpkin Soup. So much flavor in one little bowl…and bonus, it comes together in no time flat in one pot. #easycleanup #thingsmomslove
This recipe serves four.
1 pound of sweet Italian sausage, remove from casing if necessary
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
2 cups of milk (I used 2%)
2 cups of chicken stock
1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin (I used Libby’s)
Grated Parmesan cheese to garnish
Chopped parsley to garnish
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)
salt and pepper
In a large pot over medium-high heat, brown up your sausage in just a drizzle of EVOO. Once browned and crumbly, stir in your chopped onion and garlic along with a big pinch of salt and pepper and saute about five minutes (until tender). Next, stir in your butter and allow to melt. As soon as it melts, sprinkle in your flour and stir around about a minute. Next, whisk in your milk, chicken stock and pumpkin. Bring everything to a boil and then reduce heat to low and simmer together about 10 minutes. Finally, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with grated Parmesan and chopped parsley.
That’s it! One pot and one delicious and hearty supper.
