Guest #11 - Guest Post Spectacular - Sheena from Hot Eats and Cool Reads
Hi everyone! I'm Sheena, and I blog over at Hot Eats and Cool Reads. I have a spunky 5 year old daughter who keeps me busy when I'm not at work, and in my spare time I love to try new recipes and blog about them. Reading is also a hobby, so you'll find book reviews on the blog too.
We are huge soup lovers at our house, so I'm always on the look out for some new soup inspirations. This one was made up of some ingredients I had on hand, and the inspiration from a soup I made when I first started blogging. I love the tomatoes, beans and pasta in this soup. There is so much flavor and it warms you right up! It's wonderful for a cold winter day and we've had a few of those in Minnesota lately! Brrr!
Thanks so much to Nichi for letting me share today and I hope you enjoy this soup as much as we did!
Sausage and White Bean Soup
What you need:
1 pound sausage of your choice, I used pork
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup onion, diced
1 cup shredded carrot
7 cups chicken broth
1- 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
1- 15 ounce can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 cup small pasta
salt and pepper
In a soup pot, brown sausage, garlic, and onion seasoned with the Italian seasoning and salt and pepper until sausage is no longer pink. Add carrots, and saute for another 2-3 minutes. Pour in the chicken broth, tomatoes, and beans. Bring to a boil and add pasta. Reduce heat and simmer until pasta is al dente, about 10 minutes, depending on which pasta you use. Add salt and pepper as desired.
