sausage soup3This is one of our favorite soups. It is plenty hardy for a winter night. Would also be great in the summer/ fall when some of the ingredients are found locally. And quite quick to make.

Sweet Potato Sausage Soup
(Adapted from a Martha Stewart FOOD magazine recipe)


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper
  • 3/4 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed (I often get patties)
  • 2 sweet potatoes (1lb) diced (I leave the skin on)
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup small pasta cooked al dente
  • 4 cups roughly chopped mixed greens (we like Kale the best)
  • grated Parmesan cheese

  2. Add sweet potato, broth, and 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the sweet potatos are cooked. Add pasta and greens stir until the greens are wilted. Serve with Parmesan cheese.
