Here’s a hearty soup that can be eaten as a light meal or as a starter. It is full of flavor from the sausage and healthy!
1/2 lb. Italian sausage (either mild or hot – your preference) – sliced thin
1/2 chopped onion
1/2 chopped red pepper
1 bunch of swiss chard – leaves chopped small
6 cups water
2 T. Better than Bouillon Chicken flavored
1 t. garlic powder
1/2 t. Italian seasoning
Salt or salt substitute
Cook the sausage in a sauce pan until they are browned on all sides. If there is an excess of fat, drain it before proceeding.
Add the onions and red pepper and sauté until they are cooked and browned.
Pour in the water, bouillon, garlic powder, and seasonings. Add the swiss chard. Cover and boil until the chard is tender.
Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.
