Are you starting to feel the holiday pressure? I admit, I am. Even though I had a great gift wrapping session earlier this week, there is still much to do. We're having a happy hour at our house today for 20+ people, and I allowed my oldest son to have a Christmas party tomorrow, which has me a bit freaked out since it's looking to be an equally large group (of teenagers). I may need to hire bouncers.
But, I do have a great holiday recipe that your guests are sure to love, and you can make it ahead of time! It's my favorite soup - Italian Sausage Vegetable soup. It's so delicious, and honestly, it gets better the longer you let it sit and allow the flavors to marinate.
Top it off with some parmesan cheese and serve it with some crusty bread, and you're good to go!
Here is the recipe - I promise you won't be disappointed!
- 1 lb. Italian sausage (I have used regular sausage and chicken sausage - both are great)
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 garlic clove, minced
- 2 carrots peeled and diced
- 2 small zucchinis, diced
- 1 green pepper, diced (I prefer a red pepper myself)
- 1/2 cup dry white wine
- 5 cups chicken broth (40 oz)
- 1 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes
- 1 tsp. dried basil
- 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup uncooked orzo
- To serve: parmesan cheese
