Friday's Recipe

Sausage and Bean Soup with Pasta

I am slowly starting to crave warm soups. I know the weather isn't really cold yet, but I love a good chunky soup. We have just enough chill in the mornings that have started creating soup cravings.

This is a soup that I found at The Italian Dish Blog and made this week for dinner. Everyone seemed to enjoy it. I added black beans and enjoyed the savory broth flavor.


1 cup dried cannellini or cellini beans or 1 15-ounce can of any beans you like, drained

1 pound ground sausage, turkey or pork

1/2 medium onion, diced

1/2 medium carrot, diced

3 tablespoons olive oil

2 garlic cloves, minced

1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes

6 to 8 cups chicken broth

1 teaspoon dried thyme

salt and pepper

1 cup ditalini pasta, or any small pasta

grated Parmigiano Reggiano cheese
