White Bean & Sausage Soup

Directions

  1. In a large stock pot brown sausage links until dark golden color over medium heat. Remove from pot and drain. Cut links into 1 inch pieces. Set aside.
  2. Add olive oil to stock pot and turn heat to med high. Stir in chopped onions and cook for 5 minutes. Add garlic cooking for another minute. Return cut-up sausage pieces to stock pot.
  3. Stir in chicken stock, drained beans, tomatoes, thyme, spinach, and basil. Season with 1/2 tsp each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, turn down to simmer, and cook for about 20 minutes. This is a soup best not overcooked. Everything stays fresher and healthier with a nice color.
