    IngridH's Note:

    I adapted this recipe from a book called Pure Poultry. I wanted a soup that was hearty, yet still felt fairly light. This really fit the bill. The pesto really adds to the flavor of the final dish, so I highly recommend using it. Serve with a loaf of italian bread to soak up the remaining broth. If you have homemade chicken stock, use it here- the flavor really comes through. When you are prepping your ingredients, remember to cut them in small pieces, so they will fit on your spoon.

      Add the oil to a large pot, and heat over a medium flame until the oil is warm and fragrant. Add the onion, garlic, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 1-2 minutes.

      Add the chicken and sausage, and continue to cook, until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
    4. 4
      Add the carrots, celery, stock, beans, tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme and remaining salt. Cover, and bring to a boil.

      Wonderful and delicious ! I left out the chicken and added a diced green pepper out of my garden. Perfect soup for a winters night.

      Just wonderful soup; filling and good for you! I cut way back on the oil and upped the veggies and omitted the beans and chicken. The flavours were just perfect - I love orzo in soups.

      Made this for a neighbor couple whose family was visiting for several days & it was a big hit! Used homemade chicken stock, some frozed cubed chicken breast & a mild Italian sausage ~ All of which helped to make this a great tasting soup! And another time, although I'm not usually one to make soup for company, I'd like to make this very special dish! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Please Review My Recipe]
