Aunt Rita's Italian Stew

Recipe by  

"I love this recipe that my Aunt Rita makes! It's easy and very soul warming. It goes well over rice, egg noodles, pasta, mashed potatoes, or by itself with garlic bread on the side. For a vegetarian option or vegetable side dish option, just omit the sausage. Use spicy sausage if you like it hot."

Directions

  1. Cook the sausage with onion and garlic in a large, deep skillet or pot over medium heat, until the meat is browned, 10 to 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Mix in the summer squash, zucchini, carrots, mushrooms, and stewed tomatoes, reduce heat to medium-low, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 20 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

This is DELICIOUS! A great summer recipe. The only thing I did differently was to slice the zucchini and squash thickly (maybe 1/2 inch) so that they keep a little bit of crunch to them. We ate it over egg noodles and everyone enjoyed it. We froze leftovers and it was just as good after thawing again as it was the first time!

Delicious. I didn't use the mushrooms to make it more kid-friendly. Great summer meal. Thanks!

This is a very delicious dish. I used sweet Italian poultry sausage and did include the carrots and mushrooms. I also added some salt and pepper. It is different enough from my other Italian dishes to be a nice change. Hubby and I really enjoyed it! It is very healthy and a good way to get in the veggies!

As I am vegan, I omitted the meat, used Portabello mushrooms, and served the cheese on the side. It was a huge amount served as the only dish, and every drop was delicious!

I liked this - it reminds me of a mexican soup called albondiga (not sure on the spelling) I think I would prefer it with ground beef and more sauce.
