Italian Sausage, Tomato and White Bean Soup

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

This was in AJC 30 minute challenge: only five ingredients and ready in 30 minutes. It said 4 servings, but next time will double for the 4 of us (I want leftovers). It was absolutely delicious. I used Turkey sausage. Plus I used 1/2 lb. turkey bacon as I only had 1/2 lb. sausage!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In stock pot over medium heat, crumble sausage and cook until no longer pink. If necessary, drain all but 1 tablespoon fat.
  2. Add onion and saute until softened.
  3. Add chicken broth, cannellini beans and tomatoes.
  4. Stir to combine.
  5. Cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes or longer if you need to.
  6. Enjoy a quick and easy but really delightful meal.
  7. Serve with crusty bread and fruit salad; I had apples and grapes sprinkled with fresh lemon juice in refrigerator.

Love this hearty soup...easy to make and great for a winter night when you don't feel like working over the stove...just sprinkle a little grated parmesan over the top when serving with some crusty whole grain bread and you have a great meal!

Very easy to make. I use regular canned diced tomamatoe and add one tsp. dried basil to the soup. I also add 2 cloves minced garlic to meat after it has browned and cook about one minutes so it doesn't burn. I like a thicker soup, so I don't drain the beans and cook one hour until it is very thick. My family loves this soup and we make it often
