DIRECTIONS

  • Defat the sausage- Place the sausages in a sauce pan with enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and let boil for 5 minutes. Drain, and when cool enough to handle, chop into small dice.
  • 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.
  • Add the carrots, celery, stock, beans, tomatoes, bay leaf, thyme and remaining salt. Cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to medium low and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Add the pasta, simmer another 8-10 minutes, until the pasta is al dente.
  • To serve, ladle into warm soup bowls, and top with a tablespoon of pesto (if using).
