It was pouring rain today and cold; perfect soup weather, but not having a full pantry this is what i came up with using leftovers from Easter. Most of the ingredients were already cut and sausage was cooked. (bagged cut carrots from the grocery store) Also having my toddler daughter literally clinging to me all day it had to be super quick and simple. This is a very thrown together recipe and im sure could use improvements and / or changes but for as simple as it was it tasted very good to me. prep time doesnt include cooking the sausage.
