Tuscan Sausage and White Bean Soup is a hearty, flavorful dish perfect for dinner any night of the week. This comforting soup is perfect on it’s own, or you can be like us, and add some crackers before enjoying!
Tuscan Sausage and White Bean Soup
This comforting soup comes from one of Barbara’s good friends, Maryann. It is one of those throw-it-all-together-and-enjoy kinds of soups, especially good on a cold winter’s day. This is comfort food at it’s best.
Maryann shared the recipe with Barbara years ago and it has stood the test of time and is even kid-approved.
The ingredients are easy to keep on hand: butter, onion, garlic, flour, evaporated milk, chicken broth, sausage, cannellini beans and salt and pepper.
We use regular ground pork sausage in this soup. You could use a flavored sausage, like Italian, or even use a turkey sausage if you prefer.
The white beans in this Tuscan Sausage and White Bean Soup are actually Cannellini beans. Be sure to just dump them in undrained.
Once the soup is heated through, all that is left is to ladle it out into your favorite soup bowls, add crackers and dig in! Simple as can be.
HOW TO MAKE TUSCAN SAUSAGE AND WHITE BEAN SOUP
Heat butter in a saucepan; add onion and garlic and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in flour. Slowly add evaporated milk and chicken broth, stirring constantly. Bring the mixture to a boil, and add cooked sausage and undrained beans. Heat through, and season to your liking with salt and black pepper.
One thing to keep in mind is that this is small-batch recipe and you’ll get 4 servings, so definitely double it for larger families or if you want leftovers.
