Recipe: Zandra’s Chef Boyardee

Zandra made dinner this past Sunday night and it was so yummy. It was a real hit and everyone wants to have it again. It was also super easy – so it’s a keeper.
It’s like a Lasagna soup: we will call it Zandra’s Chef Boyarded because Rob said it reminded him of Chef Boyardee but wayyyyyyy better (obviously).
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
6 Italian turkey sausages, casings removed
1 box chicken broth (900 ml)
