This was super hearty and super delcious (or should I say "souper"?). It also makes a LOT so be sure to use a giant pot. I think it serves much more than 8. I didn't follow the cooking directions exactly, but I believe I maintained the spirit of the recipe. I browned my sausage and, when partially done, added the onion and carrots, to cook a little more. When done, I added the garlic for a minute before adding the tomatoes, beans, basil, salt and pepper. Once that was well combined, I added the chicken broth. I simmered that for about 15 minutes, then brought it to a boil again and added uncooked mezze penne pasta. I let that cook for another 10 minutes. Before serving, I added some parmesan cheese. A little of this soup goes a long way because it is so filling. Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring PAC 2014.

Believe it or not, it was cold and rainy down here in the Florida Keys a couple of days ago. . . perfect to make a batch of soup. This hit the spot for sure!!! I followed your directions exactly. I did mash up the beans a bit before adding the pasta. Thanks for sharing, KelleyMcCoy.
