Sausage Bean Soup

"I use sweet sausage, but if you like things hot, use a spicy sausage. I always drain off the fat very well after browning it."

    I liked this soup. I made it last night. I did use less sausage, because I didn't want to open another pack. And I used black eyed peas for the beans. I used canned tomatoes with italian seasoning but still added the herbs called for.

    This soup was spicy and satisfying. I used hot Italian sausage and it was very tasty and hot which is how I like things. It was simple and easy to make. It even tasted better the next day. I will definitely make this again! Thanks for posting!

    Wonderfully fragrant and satisfying! I used 1/2 sweet Italian sausage and 1/2 spicy, removing the casings to brown. This is such a simple and delicious recipe not to use often this Fall season! Thank you again, Parsley!

    It's recipes like this one that makes me wish for more stars to give. This soup is one of the best I've ever, ever, ever made. The blend of flavors is straight out of a Tuscan dream. I'm so glad I made extra for freezing. Yum, Parsley!! (applauding)
