Well, Sass gave me the idea to make a Pumpkin and Sausage Stew, but I wanted to make one using my bulk Italian sausage (yellow sticker special).

Found this one https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/pumpkin-sausage-soup/ but made quite a few changes.

I omitted all of their seasonings, just using Bell's Poultry Seasoning and black pepper. I simmered the soup uncovered to reduce and thicken it. I omitted the cream and cornstarch thickener.


Here is the recipe that I made:

Pumpkin Sausage Soup


  • 1 pound bulk Italian sausage
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 carton (32 ounces) unsalted chicken stock
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 1 teas. sugar
  • 2 teaspoons Bell’s
  • Black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded smoked cheddar cheese ( I used a little less)

In a Dutch oven, cook sausage, mushrooms and onion over medium-high heat until sausage is no longer pink and vegetables are tender, 8-10 minutes, breaking up sausage into crumbles; drain. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Add stock, pumpkin, sugar and seasonings. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, to reduce, about 30 – 45 minutes.

  • Add cheese; cook and stir until melted.
