Rated as 4.45 out of 5 Stars

"This is simple fare that the whole family will enjoy. I make this, or a close rendition, and freeze in batches for my toddler's lunches. But it's also a nice option for those times when you don't have a lot of time or headspace, but want to cook something from scratch that's satisfying and tastes like it cooked for ages."

  1. Heat olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add sausage and cook until browned, breaking apart with a wooden spoon. Stir in carrots, celery, and red onion; cook until softened, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Pour in beans with their liquid.
  2. Add potatoes, thyme, oregano, salt, and pepper to the saucepan. Pour in enough water to cover, about 1 1/2 cups. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are tender and soup thickens, about 20 minutes.

This soup has a watered down taste. It needs chicken or beef broth not water. Add some canned tomatoes with chillies, lots of garlic, onion powder, white or red wine to give it some flavor.

My family liked this. They even went back for seconds. I drained the beans but used 2 cans of diced tomatoes with the juice. I will make this again.

Very tasty, wonderful soup! It takes more than 20 minutes to prep, but well worth the work of chopping up all the vegetables. I did use chicken broth instead of water and strongly suggest you us...
