    PanNan's Note:

    A delicious version of this popular Italian soup. Adding the sausage (regular or turkey) makes it a satisfying meal if served with a nice warm baguette.

      This soup was a huge hit in our house! It is a very hearty soup bursting with flavor. The soup is also very appealing to the eye with the red, orange, white and green colors from the vegetables and beans. This soup is hearty enough to be a stew/chili as it is not loaded with broth. I doubled the recipe using hot Italian sausage and ground beef (I only had hot Italian sausage which was too much heat for the entire family). I used a couple of extra carrots and stalks of celery to beef up the vegetables. I was unable to locate cannellini beans at my grocery store so I substituted navy beans which are also white. I can't say enough about how great this soup tasted. Thank-you so much for sharing your recipe!

      I just turned the burner off! This is soup is complete! This will sound silly; for years I've thought about making this type of soup but I thought it was way over my head. I have to tell you in all honesty it was the easiest thing in the world to make! Oh yes, I did have a little sample: OMG! This is the type of thing I can throw together in 15 minutes and tell everyone I spent all day! LOL

      Thanks, PanNan, I love this soup! I altered the order of adding ingredients to avoid overcooking: I browned the sausage before adding onion, garlic, and celery. I added carrots with the stock (and any other root veggies on hand: potatoes, parsnips, etc. should go then). Also, if using dry beans, they can be boiled separately for an hour after their "soak" and added with the root veggies. I waited until the end and added canned diced tomatoes when I added the pasta so the tomato chunks wouldn't get too cooked down (small "veggies for soup", corn, peas, etc. should also be added here).
