Italian Sausage and Ravioli Soup – Bumpkin
I took out pork the other day because I was in the mood for pork. When I opened the package to cook it, it smelled to high heaven! I didn’t know pork could smell so nasty. Needless to say, we did not eat THAT pork. But, Townie had already posted pork for the day so I remember I had made this soup about a week ago and happened to take a photo so I would have some stuff in the “archive”. The sausage is made from pork, so it fit the bill!
Our grocery store brand of Italian chub sausage is really good, so I always have some in my freezer. I stock up when it goes on sale to throw into sauce and what not when we need a quick protein. However, when I took it out this last time I was NOT in the mood for pasta and sauce. The weather has turned so I was thinking soup. I had some spinach that needed to be used, a pint of homemade spaghetti sauce and some frozen raviolis. Out came THIS invention, that the family loved and WILL be made again.
I served with a crisp green salad and some crusty sour dough. YUMMY!!
