When I lived up in Northern California, I had a wonderful friend named Deb.
Deb loved to cook.
We were like two peas in a pod!
She used to have a fun girls night over at her house where we would drink wine, make huge pots of a few different soups, have dinner then package up and divide the soups between all the girls to take home and freeze.
This was one of my favorite soups that we used to make.
My whole family loves this soup.
It’s a rich tomato based soup enhanced with red wine.
It’s loaded with Italian sausage, pasta, mushroom and spinach.
It’s served hot, then it’s loaded with chunks of Provolone and a topped with a sprinkle of Parmesan and basil.
Doesn’t that sound like a whole lot of YUM!!!
