Cool morning temperatures always put me in the mood for soups and stews. I love to create a filling, healthy, low calorie soup or stew to fill my craving for cold weather food.
This chicken sausage stew is wonderful. It is so filling, but healthy at the same time. The addition of red pepper flakes and white wine make this a spicy and flavorful stew for the whole family to enjoy. Plus its easy to make, saving you time in the kitchen.
I recommend serving with a nice green leafy salad and fresh crusty bread. Oh, don’t forget the dry white wine!
