Low-FODMAP Italian Turkey Sausage Soup

Low-FODMAP Italian Turkey Sausage Soup {Gluten-Free}  /  Delicious as it Looks

Now that daylight savings has ended, it gets dark so quickly and the weather has really cooled down. I guess I'm ready for winter. I love fall and wish it was a longer season, but this year it seemed even shorter than usual. Summer hung around far too long and then it got cold pretty quick. I'm not a huge fan of winter, but I do like it better than summer, that's for sure! Maybe I'm weird like that, but I find summer hot, sweltering, sticky and sweaty. Yuck. I love being inside with the fireplace on, some hot tea in my hands and a pug on my lap while it's freezing outside. Some soup on the stove would round out that scenario just fine.

I think this Italian soup fits the bill for warming up a cold day. It's made with my Low-FODMAP Italian Seasoned Sausage, using ground turkey. It's really very easy to make, especially if you have some chicken stock in your freezer or if you are trying the new soup bases from FODY Foods. This recipe is designed for unsalted chicken stock or broth, so if you do use the FODY Soup Base, be sure to omit the salt I have listed, or just add it to taste.
