Instructions

  1. Add the Italian Sausage to a dutch oven or heavy bottomed skillet. Over medium high heat, cook, crumbling until it’s cooked through. 
  2. Add in the carrot and saute for about 3-4 minutes until they begin to soften. They do not have to be completely cooked at this point. 
  3. Add in the garlic and saute briefly, about 1 minute. Be careful that it does not burn. 
  4. Add in the onion powder and mix to combine. 
  5. Add in the potatoes, chicken stock, salt, pepper, marjoram, basil and oregano. Stir to combine. 
  6. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. 
  7. Stir in the broccoli, corn, and peas. Cook an additional 5 minutes. 
  8. In a separate small bowl, whisk together the milk and flour. Add to the soup. 
  9. Turn the heat to low and slowly stir in the cheese until it is melted and mixed through. 
  10. Serve up and enjoy!
