Today's #SundaySupper theme is Warming Trends and is hosted by T.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley. It's all about dishes that warm you down to your toes. Of course, the first thing I thought of was soup and I just so happen to have plenty of soup recipes sitting as drafts in my Blogger dashboard. This particular soup is one I've been meaning to post for weeks. I actually cannot take credit for making this one - Nick did!

I planned to make this a few days before I was due to have Mason (on Wednesday - our soup night), thinking that my little guy would be punctual and be born on his due date just like Matthew & Cami were. However, I ended up having real labor contractions on Sunday - that like with the other two, stopped, so on Monday, I got my little kickstart and had Mason early Tuesday morning. So I had to stay in the hospital and I knew I was going to miss soup night and I knew I was going to miss this soup. So I begged Nick to wait for me and not make it until I got home. He graciously agreed and made it on Thursday evening, my first day home from the hospital.

Even though my hospital food was very very good, a homecooked meal was even better. It was February and the kids had been missing a ton of school due to snow days. So that made this soup an even more perfect meal! We used hot Italian sausage as recommended that gives it a little spicy heat in addition to the already lovely warmth that is that actual soup itself. This is sure to warm you up and it tastes just like the real thing from Olive Garden!
