Italian Sausage Soup

This sausage soup is total comfort food in a bowl with red pepper, spinach, and frozen egg noodles that give it such a from scratch feel to it!

Do you ever eat something and it reminds you of a nostalgic food but you can't put your finger on it? That is this Italian sausage soup for me. I think, in part, the nostalgia is due to the frozen egg noodles. The thing is...I can't remember who it was that made the recipe with frozen egg noodles. I feel like it was my mother-in-law but it very well could be my grandma. Who knows! What I do know is that you cannot go wrong with a sausage soup with red bell and spinach in it. The nostalgic noodles were just a bonus :)

I can't get enough of the comfort foods this time of year, like this One Pot White Chicken Lasagna Soup. I highly recommend this Cheeseburger Soup from The Recipe Critic - it's another family favorite that we make often.
