Sausage, Potato & Leek Soup

This soup is pretty simple.  Great for nights when you need to crank out dinner in 30 minutes or less! There are some pre-baked rolls that I keep in my freezer to go with nights like these.  Look for them in the freezer isle.  They are delicious and cook in 8 minutes.  They are a good with this soup and also maybe serve with a side caesar salad.  Still pulling off a really good warm home cooked meal but pretty fast! Here's to fast crazy nights!   



Ground Italian sausage

1 bunch of leeks

3 Tbl butter

¼ cup flour

3 potatoes peeled and diced

8 cups chicken broth

Brown the sausage in a large pot. While sausage is cooking, wash and chop leeks. After sausage is cooked pour it into a strainer and rinse in the sink.  Return the pot to the stove and sauté leeks in butter. After they are soft and fragrant, whisk in the flour.  Then add chicken broth and diced potatoes. Simmer until potatoes are soft and add sausage back into the soup.  Season with salt and pepper if needed.
