Sausage and Lentil Soup
It’s no big secret that I wholeheartedly adore Fall and right along with the chilly temps and gorgeous leaves comes soup season. And let me tell ya – I also wholeheartedly enjoy soup.
There’s just something about a big pot of soup simmering away on the stove that makes me want to throw some wood into the fireplace and curl up on the couch all day. Soup is warm, comforting and in my opinion it’s the perfect Autumn dinner. There’s just one problem and the problem would be my family.
They refer to soup as a “tease” and think that it should never be referred to as dinner – more specifically – their dinner. I remember one of the first times that I made soup for them, they slurped it down and within a few minutes stated something like, “That was great, now what’s for dinner?” Um, hello – you just ate it!
Typically I’ll their meat and potato ways, but sometimes I can slip a soup into our repertoire that qualifies as a meal instead of an appetizer. Sausage and Lentil Soup is just that kind of creation. It’s loaded with Italian sausage and veggies cooked in a rich tomato broth. And if you’re a fan of Carrabba’s Sausage and Lentil Soup, you may be a little excited to hear that this copycat version tastes very similar!
Serve this Sausage and Lentil soup with a loaf of fresh bread – or maybe even Beer Bread – and you’ll have a meal that will please just about anyone!
