Fall Meals

leave a comment »

Well, it’s officially fall (and we officially suck as bloggers – my goodness!).  Last night I made this yummy meal from Martha’s new “One Pot” cookbook.  Using only one pot is SO up my alley – I LOVE when Mike makes dinner but I also hate it because that means that I’m on clean up duty . . . which means that I have to clean EVERY SINGLE dish, pan, pot, utensil, that we own.  Is that a man thing?  Or just my man thing?

I used chicken sausage instead of pork and it’s still missing something . . . maybe more flavorful chicken sausage?  Still good enough to post.

Martha Stewart makes meals on the TODAY show in New York, on Sept. 22, 2014.

Sweet potato and sausage soup

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 3/4 pound sweet or hot Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 sweet potatoes (1 pound total), peeled and cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 3/4 cup small pasta shells
  • 4 cups coarsely chopped mixed leafy greens, such as kale and Swiss chard
  • Freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, for serving

In a stockpot, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion and garlic; cook until onion is translucent, about 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add sausage and cook, breaking up meat with a wooden spoon, until browned, about 5 minutes.

Add sweet potatoes, broth, and water; bring to a boil. Add pasta and cook 3 minutes less than package directions recommend. Reduce to a simmer, add greens, and cook until pasta is tender and greens are wilted, 4 minutes. Serve with Parmigiano-Reggiano.

Tonight I’m thinking of making Caramelized Onion and Yogurt Pasta + Kale Salad with Apples and Hazelnuts.  Looks pretty good, right?
