White Bean and Sausage Soup
This recipe comes from one of my favorite magazines Everyday Food. It is absolutely perfect for the last cool days of Spring.
You need just a few ingredients, sausage, shallots or onions, garlic, basil, beef broth, white beans and diced tomatoes.
Chop up your shallots and garlic.
Remove the sausage from the casings. In a dutch oven cook the sausage over medium high heat with the shallots and garlic. Cook until the sausage is browned and the shallots or onion have softened, about 8 minutes.
Add the tomatoes and the broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer partially covered for 10 minutes. Add in the beans, salt, pepper and basil and let it heat through, about 2 minutes.
Garnish with some Parmesan cheese and you are ready to eat! This soup is delicious and simple, but really fills you up. This will be a favorite of yours if you are a fan of sausage.
