This recipe was given to me by a friend. It is easy, the ingredients are always on my shelf & boy, is it tasty! Change the sausage to spicy for more heat.

GOOD! The first time I made this recipe, I used turkey sausage because it's all I had but it turned out good! I think you can substitute any kind of sausage you like... My 12 y-old daughter liked it very much, she ask for it every week ! She calls it: the corn soup.
