Stoup = somewhere in between soup and stew. I found this online one day and it’s now my favorite stoup.

1 large onion, roughly chopped

1 clove garlic, minced

1 16 oz. can of stewed tomatoes

3/4 cup Pace Picante sauce

8 oz. mushrooms, halved or quartered

1 t dry basil

1/4 t dry oregano

1 small red bell pepper, roughly chopped

1 small green bell pepper, roughly chopped

1.5 t salt

1 t fennel (depending on your sausage)

3 t balsamic vinegar

1/3 cup red wine

Instructions: cut sausage into 1″ pieces, remove casing. Cook until lightly browned and drain. . Add onion and garlic, cook until the sausage is no longer pink. Pour off drippings. Add tomatoes, Pace, mushrooms, basil and oregano . Simmer uncovered for 15 minutes. Add peppers and simmer another 5 minutes.

Makes 4 servings, or 6 cups of stoup.
