Lynn demonstrates how to make a great Slow Cooker Sausage, Potato and Swiss Chard Soup that is great for a cold winter day. Serve with crusty bread and this makes a great lunch or dinner.
Cut sausage into 1" pieces.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown sausage. With slotted spoon, transfer to slow cooker.
Drain fat from skillet. Add broth and bring to a boil, scraping up browned bits; scrape into slow cooker.
Add water, onion, garlic, potatoes, Italian seasoning, pepper and hot pepper flakes to slow cooker, stirring to combine.
Cover and cook on low until potatoes are tender, 4-6 hours.
Stir in Swiss Chard; cook, covered, on high until wilted, about 10 minutes. Serve with parmesan cheese.
