Beans and Greens Soup

Top Review by JackieOhNo

This could not have been simpler to make and was quite delicious. I used hot Italian sausages, because I like a little spice, and baby spinach. Other than that, I followed the recipe as posted. Rather than using a blender or food processor, I used my immersion blender, which made the process even that much more easier. This is a guilt-free soup that is very satisfying. Thanks for sharing.
