READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Daisy58

This recipe tastes just like the sausage soup at the olive garden. It's just a little healthier. I have used several different beans, great northern, kidney, pinto and they all taste good.

This is the best! I added some cilantro, added 1 more potatoe and used 1# bulk italian sausage to make it stretch further as I had company. We all could hardly get enough! Too bad the stomach gets full when the taste for more is still going. A+++
