    Wonderful

    Niki C from Harbor Springs, MI

    This is very easy to make and satisfying. I like to saute red pepper with the onions; sometimes I add a diced jalaeaeno pepper. If I have leftover corn on the cob -- I'll cut if off the cob, saute it until browned in a little olive oil and add that too. I also add a few dashes of cayenne pepper to give it a little kick. I substitute turkey sausage for the pork. It is always a hit.

    Mmmm...

    Lynn Matsunaga from NEWBURY PARK, CA

    At first, the end result of this recipe didn't look the most appetizing because it's pretty much all white. BUT, tasting the result is fantastic!

    Tuscan style sausage and bean soup

    dawn kellert from Brick, NJ

    Very good soup. I used lower sodium chicken stock and added about a cup extra to thin it out a little since it was a bit thick. The soup was very easy to make. Next time I will add more beans.

    This soup is a real stick to your ribs type of soup. I loved the creaminess of it. The sausage gave it a great taste. It is truely Simple Tuscan Food. I enjoyed this soup with a good crusty Itailian bread.

    Tuscan White Bean Soup

    Gwen Antosz from STATEN ISLAND, NY

    This is one of the best soups I have ever tasted! It's like a warm hug on a cold night. Very filling and so easy, especially if your market sells sausage without the casings, like mine does. I will make this often during the coming Winter. Thanks for a GREAT recipe.

    substitute

    Jennifer Shippee from GREENVILLE, NH

    I substituted the butter for olive oil and it still tasted great but I felt better since it had less fat.

    Excellent =)

    Kelly Button from Circleville, OH

    I served this soup with some chunks of whole grain bread for dipping and everyone loved it, including my super picky 6 year old. I definitely plan on serving this again.

    Beans are GOOD

    Mark H. from Richmond Beach, WA

    I would recommend adding a second can of beans to this recipe. There is plenty of liquid from the evaporated milk and chicken broth to support an additional can without adversely impacting the fine flavor. Also, consider using low sodium chicken broth.

    EXCELLENT

    Rane Williams from Crystal River, FL

    Great Soup for A Cool Fall Day

    Karen Morris from HOUSTON, TX

    I first tried this recipe last fall and made it numerous times which tells you my family loved it. It's a great tasting soup that makes a real impression on guests as well. I'm looking forward to a good cool day so I can start making it this again this fall.

    Tuscan Sausage and White Bean Soup

    LYNNE SHERLUND-DUPUIS from ANDREWS, SC

    I LOVE this recipe, quick, easy, and not expensive to make. I have made it many times and it never fails. I give a copy to friends who are not cooks and they love it too! Just serve it with a crusty bread and you have a good hot dinner in 30 minutes or less. The first time I made it, I had to go back to the store and buy ingredients for another batch to have on hand!

    Had to pass it on

    Bonnie Jo Milburn from ROEBUCK, SC

    I wasn't sure about putting sausage in soup, but my husband is a deer hunter and we have a freezer full of deer sausage. I read the great reviews on this soup, so I tried it. WOW! We loved it! We have told our hunting friends about it, and passed on the recipe. I made a double recipe to freeze for a fast meal another night.

    Very Hearty

    Ronda Jones from New Jersey

    This was a wonderful recipe, although it was a bit thick for my liking. I stretched this recipe by adding an additional can of chicked broth as well as can of beans. Being weight conscience I used fat free evaporated milk and a pound of ground turkey then added my own spices for a little kick.....I will make this again....and again.

    Quick, easy and good

    paula fellwock from RICHLAND CENTER, WI

    I like to take homemade soup to work but often I don't get started on it as soon as I would like. This goes together quickly and tastes so good with whole wheat bread or corn muffins.

    hearty soup

    Tracy Mesiti from HILLSDALE, NJ

    I thought this was a good base for tuscan bean soup, but it needed something so I added some zuccini, carrots and thyme to jazz it up and make it a bit more hearty.

    This soup reminds me of one I had at the Olive Garden. To make this soup extra special, I added chopped potatoes and fresh parsley. This comfort food is very hearty and wonderful to have during those cold winter nights.
