Mangi! Mangi! .....Cooking up some of my ITALIAN SOUP!! Its one of my faves and so comforting during the winter. The sweet Italian turkey gives this soup awesome flavor!! Clean eating too!
1 lb sweet Italian turkey sausage (take out of casing)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (28 oz) whole tomatoes
1 can (46 oz) chicken broth
1/2 lb escarole, cleaned and coarsely chopped
1 cup uncooked small bowtie pasta
2 cans (15 oz) cannellini white beans (or substitute 1 can w/ red beans)
- In a large soup pot, over medium heat, brown sausage breaking up large pieces.
- Stir in tomatoes and their liquid (break up tomatoes).
-Bring to a boil.
-Add escarole and simmer for 15 minutes.
- Meanwhile....cook pasta, drain. Drain beans. Add pasta and beans to soup.
- Add salt, pepper if desire.You can also add fennel seeds for an extra kick.
*This soup is better the second day after it sits in the fridge over night. Tastes great with parmesan cheese!
