Post by pstarkoski on Wed May 16, 2012 4:56 am

I have this on the stove right now to serve for dinner tonight. I had better crank down the AC's really hot here in south florida today! Oh well...I love soup and this one is gonna be a keeper! It is a really hardy soup, full of all kinds of good "stuff"!! I already had a little taste just so you know it is "TNT"!!

Italian Sausage Bean Soup
In the cold months, I like to put on a big pot of this comforting soup. It cooks away while I do other things like baking bread, crafting or even cleaning the house. —Glenna Reimer, Gig Harbor, Washington
