Cold Buster Soup
(double recipe because inevitably if you are making it someone else in your house is bound to get sick too and it’s nice to just have a big old pot of soup to get through a few dinners)
Recipe type: Soup
  • 1 package turkey sausage
  • 1 package pork sausage
  • Fresh oregano
  • 2 boxes chicken stock
  • 2 jars marinara sauce
  • 3 zucchinis
  • 1 sweet onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 6 dill pickles (this is the “secret ingredient” that intrigues the kids and makes them keep eating it while they guess the first time)
  1. Dice onion. Add to stock pot. Sauté until clear. Add garlic and sausages, cook until browned. Dice pickles as tiny as you can get them. Add pickles and oregano (to taste) to the sausage. Simmer. Let it get cozy.
  2. Chop zucchini and add to meat. Let it get soft but not mushy. Add chicken stock and marinara. Let simmer.
  3. Serve warm with toast and love. Tastes even better the next day.
  4. Optional: add pasta or tortellini to make more substantial.
