Italian sausage soup is a real simple yet delicious meal to prepare for a winter evening and family gatherings.
As for any other kind of soup Italian sausage soup has different variations. You can try cooking Italian sausage following different recipes according to your taste or according to seasonal products.
One thing that my Italian Grandma always does is adding some Mediterranean herbs and spices to the soup to give it a more interesting taste. Some people like to eat their soup with vegetables chunks and pieces of sausage other people like to blend everything and make it a creamy soup and then add sausage afterwards.
I find that the best part of Italian sausage soup is the crispy and fragrant croutons. Traditionally, to make croutons, we use Tuscan bread which has less salt. We simply bake it in preheated oven at about 425°F. for 8/10 minutes then add salt and extra virgin olive oil drizzle to it.
Tuscan bread is perfect to make croutons for Italian sausage soup because the sausage is already very tasty so the fact that it has less salt makes it lighter.
