Hot Sausage Sammie-to-Stoup

Jan W


This is for the Sammie-to-Soup Challenge on Sandwiches, Sammiches & Sammies favorite sammie is hot sausage with peppers & I built my soup around those ingredients! Because of the meat and pasta in it, the consistency is more of a stew, so I copied Rachael Ray's word and called this a Stoup (cross between stew and soup)..
The recipe as written yields about 4 quarts, and my hubby liked it so well that he ate nearly 2/3 of it! I went back to get the last of it to find an empty pot...well, can always make more!

How to Make Hot Sausage Sammie-to-Stoup


  1. In large (at least 4-5 qt.) stainless pan, pour diced tomatoes and crushed tomatoes. Using my mandoline, I sliced the peppers and onions. Add in onions, peppers and seasonings. Set heat on medium, let it come to simmer and cook, covered, until onions and peppers are tender. Stir occasionally to ensure it doesn't stick. I used my immersion blender to puree the vegetables until almost smooth.
  2. With stoup simmering good, add the pasta (if desired) and cook, stirring occasionally, until cooked. NOTE: I used too much pasta and it got too thick, so maybe either omit it or cut way back on measurement.
  3. Add meat into pan and continue cooking until they are warmed through. (I used both cooked small hot sausage meatballs and thinly-sliced hot sausage links in this stoup) SEE LINK IN COMMENTS SECTION FOR HOMEMADE HOT SAUSAGE RECIPE
  4. Ladel stoup into large soup bowls and garnish with some mozzarella cheese and a few croutons. Enjoy!
  5. Special note: The diced & crushed tomatoes, peppers and onions are what I use when I make the hot sausage other seasoning...Then I put the cooked sausage links in it & let it cook on low for a couple hours in the crockpot...put them on rolls and chow down!!!!
