Slow Cooker Sausage Vegetable Soup

Slow Cooker Sausage Vegetable Soup is fully loaded with your favorite veggies and sausage in a completely satisfying tomato base soup like grandma used to make. This one is going to rock your world!

Whew! The holidays are in full swing now, and I feel like I haven’t stopped running at full speed since well before Thanksgiving. Everyone (including myself) is in full holiday treat mode, and everything I am surrounded by seems to be geared towards one- holiday sweets, and two- holiday dinner. I can’t scroll for 4 seconds on Facebook and Pinterest without being hit by a Christmas cookie, a baked ham, and a photo of Elf on the Shelf.

I’m Jacqueline, and I blog over at Go Go Go Gourmet- my mantra is all about “less effort, more taste,” and I have definitely achieved that with this incredibly simple, but absolutely delicious pasta dish that is a guaranteed family dinnertime hit. I’m so happy to be bringing my recipe philosophy over to my friends Donna and Chad here at TSRI!

These are all great (especially because you can’t have too many cookie recipes, right?!), but I need some new ideas for dinners that are fast (because I don’t have time to spend) and inexpensive (because I no longer have money to spend either!). This soup fits the bill to a T- easy, warm, and hearty. If you have a multi cooker (like an Instant Pot, or some slow cookers have this functionality as well), you end up with one dish to clean, and the whole dish requires about 10 minutes of actual work. Packed with the best flavors for winter, like sausage, basil, and oregano, your family will adore it!


  •  This is the perfect soup to use up all of your left over vegetables. Broccoli, asparagus, peas, corn, kale...  It all is amazing in here. I do prefer to add spinach at the end so it is just wilted when served, but if you love cooked spinach you will love it in here too.
  • Soup freezes great, potatoes will break up when they are thawed. But it does not affect the soup overall!  Allow to cool to room temperature before placing in the freezer.


  • Slow Cooker - I have a multi cooker that allows me to brown/saute right in the insert, saving me an extra dish to clean.
  • Garlic Press-One of my moist used kitchen tools! I received mine as a gift years ago and I can't imagine why I never had one. It minces garlic with one squeeze, with the peel still on!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
