Pumpkin and Sausage Soup

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by AustinsAm

I haven't actually made this recipe myself. My Boss made it and gave me the recipe. This soup was amazing! The perfect soup for a crisp fall day. It is a little different with the cinnamon and sausage, but quite tasty. My Boss used her own home-grown pumpkin, but I'm sure canned will work just as well!

Excellent soup! I chose this recipe because I could easily adapt it to be low-carb, Atkins friendly. I don't like foods that combine sweet and savory, so all I had to do was eliminate the brown sugar. I did substitute 2 tsp of the artificial sweetener that comes in the big yellow bag. I also added a very hearty shake of crushed red pepper. My DH liked it so much he had two big bowls. I will be making this again.
