Many years ago I worked at an Italian restaurant that had lentil and Italian sausage soup on the menu. It was not something I would normally be drawn to on a menu and if it wasn't for the fact that we had to sample the entire menu, I may have never tried it. One taste and I began my love affair with this amazingly comforting winter soup. I set out to recreate that very soup and the memories tied to it. I am proud to announce that it was a huge success. If you are skeptical, give it one taste and you will become a believer.
Every time I make this, the whole family fights over who gets the last bowl. It is our daughters favorite. She requests it often. For me, it is a toss up between this and my Chicken Bacon Chowder Recipe. If you are a big soup fan like me, check out my entire section of low carb, keto soups and stews. I even have an ebook make up entirely of SOUP!! Slow Cooker Soups and Stews - 30 Recipes to Keep you Warm During Winter!
