Italian Bean and Sausage Soup

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 20 mins

This soup has become a family favourite through the years. It comes together fairly quickly, but more importantly, it tastes good. I have "excellent" written in the margin.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oil in a 4 quart pot. Remove sausage from casing & crumble into oil. Stir in the onions and garlic. Cook over "high" heat, stirring often, until the sausage browns (about 5 minutes).
  2. Meanwhile, cut up the tomatoes right in the can (use kitchen shears).
  3. Add tomatoes w' juice, water, pasta and bouillon cubes to the pot. Bring to boil over "high" heat, stiring a couple of times. Lower heat, cover & simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, rinse and drain the beans. Add to the soup and simmer for 5 minutes, or until pasta is tender and the beans are heated through.

This was delicious and easy! I also used hot sausage, and I ended up using 4 cups of hot water. Other than that, I made it exactly as written and served it with a salad and some garlic breadsticks. It was just perfect for a cold winter's night. Thanks for sharing this. Made for Holiday Tag.

Quick and Easy, and very good! This came together really quickly. I found I needed more chicken broth to keep the soup from becoming a "casserole", so I threw in some frozen turkey broth. This had some additional seasonings, which really increased the taste of this soup. I added some parsley and chopped chives to add a little color to the soup. This is a great meal for a weeknight, after work dinner! Thanks for sharing. Made for Holiday Tag.
