Make

  1. Heat a Dutch oven with oil over medium heat. To heated oil add sausage and saute, breaking it apart, until browned, 7 to 8 minutes. Drain off excess oil.

  2. To sausage, add mushrooms and saute until mushrooms are starting to turn tender, 5 to 6 minutes more.

  3. Add chard, onions, garlic, sage, and dried thyme with some salt. Saute until onions are starting to turn tender, 4 to 5 minutes more.

  4. Add stock, tomatoes, bay leaves, and squash. Bring to a simmer. Cover and simmer (reduce heat as needed), until squash is nearly tender, about 10 minutes.

  5. Remove soup from heat. Discard bay leaves. Stir in balsamic vinegar. Taste soup and season with some salt and pepper.

  6. Ladle soup into bowls and serve. Enjoy!

So yummy and hearty. Replaced chard with spinach from csa. Not quick to make, but wish I had made a double batch because we are it up so fast.

Really good and easy to make. I added ground beef cooked separately and carrots. I added leftover crushed tomatoes too.
