A scoop of this and a scoop of that makes this Hearty Vegetable and Sausage Soup an easy, simple, and yet satisfying meal.
This simple soup was something my Papa put together many times in the slow cooker. And many times, I would eat it. Depending on how we feel, we put it in the slow cooker too. But this recipe I am sharing, gives you ca play by paly for a stove top cooking method.
My grand daddy passed away a few years ago, and this soup is something that my siblings and I always reminisce about. My sister always calls me saying “what do I put in Papa Scott’s soup”. I told that girl that if she wanted this vegetable and sausage soup recipe, then she’s gonna have to come to my website from here on out…. Seriously I wouldn’t care if she called me a million times to ask me the ingredients… I would still give her the directions a million times over. I love that girl!
There’s a need for this soup in my home, in our homes… It brings warmth, and comfort to us now a days as we go through the daily ups and downs…. Sometimes it’s just the memories that make this soup so special….
