Today we are making Creamy Italian Sausage Soup & Sweet Green Harvest Bowls

Creamy Italian Sausage Soup

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1 lb Italian sausage, casing removed

  • 1 yellow onion, diced

  • 2 carrots, peeled and diced

  • 2 celery stalks, diced

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tsp kosher salt

  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning

  • 1/2 tsp black pepper

  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour, optional to thicken

  • 1 14 oz can San Marzano tomatoes

  • 4 cups chicken broth

  • 1/2 cup uncooked orzo

  • 1 cup kale, stems removed

  • Juice from 1 large lemon, plus more to taste

  • 1/4 cup whole milk or cream

  • Parmesan cheese to finish, optional

  1. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil in a large dutch oven or soup pot over medium heat. Add the sausage and break up with a meat masher or wooden spoon until browned. Remove and set aside.

  2. Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan then add the onion, carrots, celery, and garlic to the pan, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Season with salt, Italian seasoning and pepper. Sprinkle in the flour and stir to combine. Add the tomatoes and crush them with the back of a wooden spoon (you can also do this with your hands before adding).

  3. Add the chicken broth and sausage back in and bring to a boil. Add the orzo, cover and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring once or twice to ensure the orzo doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pot.
