Italian Sausage Crock Pot Soup

We've been having a lot of chicken for dinner lately. Also since it's been cold I decided to add a nice warm soup to our dinner line-up. I had some italian sausage in the freezer that I got on sale for $1 a while ago so I decided to make this italian sausage soup for dinner. Of course, on the day I decided to make it, it was 50 degrees out, but it was still really good!

Sausage Meatball Ingredients
1 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
1/2 cup dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup milk
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Soup Ingredients 
4 cups hot chicken broth
1 tablespoon tomato paste
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/2 cup pasta
Grated Parmesan cheese
salt to taste

Mix all the meatball ingredients together. Form into small balls. 

Combine broth, tomato paste, red pepper flakes, and garlic in crock pot. Add meatballs. Cook on low for 5-6 hours. 

Thirty minutes before serving add pasta.  Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top when serving. 

It was amazing! I think I used to much pasta (I didn't measure) so there wasn't much broth, but it was still delicious. 


  1. Oh, yum! AND it can go in the crockpot. We get a lot of Italian sausage from Costco, and I totally want to try this out. Pinning! :-)
