A Creamy Italian Sausage Soup Recipe

Have you fallen in love with our Tuscan Sausage and White Bean Soup? It is our number one recipe on These Old Cookbooks.  It’s not a surprise. Barbara’s family has been enjoying that recipe for years. We even made a low-carb, gluten-free version for those wanting to follow a low-carb, gluten-free and/or Keto diet. Low-Carb Tuscan Soup uses riced cauliflower!

So, when Barbara headed back into the kitchen to cook up some new soup recipes, she took some of the elements from those Tuscan soups and pulled them into this Italian Bean Soup version.  She used kidney beans instead of cannellini beans and Italian sausage instead of regular pork sausage.

Simple Italian Sausage Soup

She loves using canned diced tomatoes that already have the seasonings added and for this recipe she used a can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic and oregano. If you don’t have access to these, you can always use regular canned diced tomatoes and add the seasonings separately to taste.

It is safe to say that this Stovetop Italian Bean Soup is just as well liked as our other soup recipes.  All three of Barbara’s kids plus our niece finished their bowls with no complaining.

How to Use Raw Italian Sausage Links for a Recipe?

If your recipe calls for ground, Italian sausage, go ahead and stock up on the raw sausage links from the grocery store.

To use raw sausage links for a recipe, take a sharp knife and make a slit long-ways down the sausage. Split the sausage open, and separate the meat from the casing (the slimy, stretchy skin around the ground meat).

The sausage casing can be discarded, and the meat inside can be browned up in a skillet just like bulk sausage or ground beef.
