Today I'm going to join the CSI Project's fall themed party. What says "fall" better than a pot of homemade soup, especially one made with pumpkin? I got this recipe at a Bob Evans restaurant years ago, and it's still one of my favorites.
1/2 lb Bob Evans Special Seasonings roll sausage*
1 large onion, finely chopped
2 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 cups canned pumpkin
1 tsp lemon juice
2 cups hot milk
salt and pepper to taste
chopped parsley, optional
In large sauce pan, brown and crumble sausage with onion. Drain off drippings. Add broth and bring to a boil. Add pumpkin and simmer 15-20 minutes. Add lemon juice, milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, and salt and pepper; simmer to blend flavors. Garnish with chopped parsley, if desired. Serves 6-8
*I don't think I've ever used this specific sausage; I just use any bulk pork sausage, usually from Aldi.
Serve with some nice crusty bread. Enjoy!
