Here's a quick, delicious, and hearty soup made all in one pan!
3 links Italian sausage, casing removed
2 carrots cubed
1 celery chopped
1 onion chopped
1 zucchini cubed
1 bunch of chard or Tuscan kale, remove stems, and chop
2 garlic cloves chopped
Scallions or chives for finishing
Small sprig rosemary, or 1/4 tsp. dried
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tbsp. tomato paste
1/2 cup wine, red or white
4 cups stock, chicken, or vegetable (no salt)
1 package potato gnocchi
Brown sausage in a heavy pot until really brown.
Add onion, carrot, celery, zucchini, cook until softened.
Add tomato paste, Italian seasonings, and garlic, stir until paste is incorporated.
Deglaze with wine.
Add the stock, bring to boil, reduce to simmer.
Add chard and rosemary.
Add 1 tsp. kosher salt
Simmer for 30 mins.
Bring back to boil, add the gnocchi, cook per package directions, generally a few minutes. Gnocchi will thicken the soup.
