Soup Party

Photo by superbez.

The last time I served food at my blog, we had that delicious "Banana Tres Leches" cake. It's been awhile since I had you all for over a bite to eat, so I want to serve you my favorite soup. Not only that, but I'm sharing the recipe with you, too, so you can enjoy all the benefits of being the Best Cook Ever.

Let's dig in!

This soup is so delicious, so easy, and so good for you - there must be a law against it somewhere. Thank the Lord we just can't find that law at this minute.

Heather's Yummy Delicious Soup She Stole from Her Mother-in-Law (thanks, Mom!):

2 cans of chicken broth
1 can water
1/2 - 1 pound smoked sausage, polish sausage, or kielbasa
1/2 box linguini, broken into 4-piece sections
1 can black-eyed peas, rinsed and drained
1/2 bag frozen leaf spinach

Cut up the sausage and brown in a little oil in the bottom of a soup pot. (We prefer canola or olive oil; do not use WD-40!) :) Add broth and water and bring to a boil. Add the noodles and cook until done. Add the beans and spinach. Simmer until heated through. Taste before giving into the temptation to season with salt or pepper. This soup is terrific all by its lonesome self!

No official thank-you notes are necessary, although comments are definitely appreciated. Enjoy!

Dear Heather, thanks for inviting me. Heather's Yummy Soup sounds great! My mother used what was left over at the end of the week to make soup. Never the same but usually red and always taste great to hungry children. It's a cold day here so I should get started on your moms recipe! Thanks again, John

Dear John,
Thanks for stopping by the Soup Party! Hope you enjoy the soup. Be sure to let me know, k?

We're always on the hunt for something new in the Delicious Department. This looks good. Gimme a couple of weeks and we'll let you know.

Yes, Heather, but here in South Africa it's almost 100 degrees Fahrenheit, and polish smoked sausage soup doesn't quite hit the spot in the cool department! We'll have to wait until June...
Got any recipes for cold soup?
