    Sharlene~W's Note:

    This is a hearty soup that can be put together quickly. If you want to make it in advance, put it together through step 5. The next day, it will be easy to lift off and discard fat, bring it to a boil and continue on with adding the pasta. This can be easily halved for a smaller group.

      This is great! And, it's so easy you can make adjustments as needed. Everyone I've served it to loves it and asks for the recipe. I use a little less broth because I like more "stuff." I use whatever kind of stock/broth I have on hand. I omit the beans and add an extra cup or so of noodles. This is even better the second or third day, and it freezes really well. Enjoy!

      This is a Sunset Magazine recipe and it consistently gets great ratings on their site as well. Some soups need to cook a long time or wait a day to have good flavor, but this one tastes good immediately and the leftovers keep getting better. I made a half recipe, using one 20-ounce package of Shadybrook Farms Italian Sausage for the protein, and one can of fire-roasted tomatoes (I like them far better than plain diced tomatoes). Using turkey sausage means you'll need to saute it in a little (like 1 Tb, maybe 2 at most) olive oil or other oil as it is very low in fat. I have a basil plant and so added some at the very end (in addition to the amount in the recipe.) Even a half recipe makes a large pot so unless you are feeding 10, I suggest halving the recipe at least the first time you make it. It freezes well, also. Using the turkey Italian sausage eliminates the need to skim off fat, as there isn't any excess, and makes the recipe much healthier without compromising the flavor. Next time I will substitute chickpeas (garbanzo beans) for the cannellini which I personally find boring. Excellent, simple recipe!
