Sweet Potato-Sausage Soup

Source: Everyday Food, November 2012

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced large
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 3/4 pound sweet Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 sweet potatoes (1 pound total), peeled and diced medium
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup small pasta shells
  • 4 cups roughly chopped mixed greens, such as kale and Swiss chard
  • Grated Parmesan, for serving

Directions

  1. In a large pot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic and cook until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes.

  2. Add sweet potatoes, broth, and 2 cups water and bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook 3 minutes less than package instructions. Reduce to a simmer, add greens, and cook until pasta is tender and greens are wilted, 4 minutes. Serve with Parmesan.

    Wow! This was awesome! I made it with mild Italian sausage and kale. Really hearty! Will be adding this to my fall/winter soup rotation.

    I made this over the weekend and it was SO GOOD! The prep was quick and the active cook time was minimal, really all I had to do was wait for the soup to boil and the noodles to get al dente. I will definitely be making this again, it was hearty and perfect for winter.

    I thought it was terribly bland. I added a handful of Italian seasonings, pinch of red pepper flakes for heat, pinch of nutmeg, 3 bullion cubes, 1/2 a tin of tomatoes, and 2 cans of tomato sauce (I was out of tomato paste). I also left out the pasta so it was gluten free. After all that, it was delicious.

    Delicious! Even my husband who says he doesn't like sweet potatoes had seconds. I used spinach 'cause that's what I had on hand. I also forgot the parm until I had finished the bowl! Added a squirt of sriracha for a little heat. Will absolutely make this again!

    This soup is easy to make and absolutely delicious. I realized I had forgotten the Parmesan cheese after I finished my bowl. I never missed it.

    I have made this soup a couple of times. It is soooo good! I shared with the neighbors and it was such a big hit they shared it with their daughters and they have made it several times. This is such a "keeper"! I'm copying the recipe right at this moment as someone else wants a copy.
    I prefer spicy things so I used the hot Itialian sausage and so glad I did. DON'T let the "greens" scare you if you are not used to using them. It really adds to this soup as does that little bit of parmesan.

    Found this recipe through the Everyday Food Digital Magazine and thought I'd give it a try. I was in the mood for a comfort food hearty soup and this one fit the bill for a cold chilly night. I laughed when I saw that apparently this soup serves 6. My husband and I (party of 2) helped ourselves to 3 and 2 servings respectively. ;0) We had just enough soup to pack up for 1 person's lunch the next day. Definitely need to double recipe to serve 4-5 generously. This soup won't disappoint!

    this soup was great! My boyfriend raved. Really delicious and pretty too!

    Will be making this as I found the recipe in EVERYDAY FOOD and it looks very good however,I almost missed it here on the site as it has ACORN squash pictures next to the recipe

    Just made this tonight with some chicken sausage I had in the freezer. It was a great way to use sweet potato and we loved the swiss chard. I will definitely make it again.

  • allisonyw 30 Nov, 2012

    Absolutely love this recipe. I do half sweet sausage, half hot and it brings such a wonderful, flavorful kick to it. Definitely part of my regular winter meal rotation now.
