What we are eating tonight.....

What I do different on this recipe is I don't make meatballs, I just cut the sausage into pieces and put it in the broth. Someone else suggested buying pre-made meatballs. I serve it with sourdough bread with garlic .... yum!

I will let you know how well it is received from my discriminating palates....
