When the first hint of cooler weather appears at the end of the summer, my husband always asks, "Isn't it time to make some soup?" It's his subtle hint for me to make this special chowder!

    I've been making this soup for years. It's delicious and easy to throw together on a weeknight. I've been using ground turkey sausage because we're cutting back on red meat and we don't even miss it.
