Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup Recipe

I'm so jealous right now.  All around me so many of you have 17+ inches of snow and we have NOTHING!  Oh what I wouldn't give for a true white Christmas this year.  Anyway, I digress.  I said all that to say I am currently obsessed with two things Christmas and soup!  So that is what inspired me to make this Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup Recipe.  


I would like to tell you I created this recipe, but that would be a lie.  I came across this recipe in a Campbell's Cookbook many years ago and we instantly fell in love with it.  I'm sure this isn't their exact recipe because let's face it, we tweak things from year to year, but I know you are going to devour it so...

Let's Get Started!



One of the things I love about this recipe is that most of the ingredients are things you already have on hand.  For this Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup Recipe you will need:


  • 1 lb Italian Sausage
  • 1 Onion, diced
  • 4-6 Cloves, minced
  • 1 15 oz can on Cannellini Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 28 oz can of Diced Tomatoes
  • 1 tsp Dried Basil
  • 1 tsp Italian Seasoning
  • 6 c Chicken Broth
  • 1/2 c Elbow Macaroni, uncooked
  • 1 6 oz package of Baby Spinach
  • 1/3 c Grated Parmesan
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


To get this Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup Recipe started you will need to add a little olive oil to a soup pot.

Place it over MEDIUM/HIGH heat and allow the pot to get hot.


Once the pan is hot you will remove the Italian sausage from its casing and add the the pot.
Cook until brown and not longer pink.


Now add the onion and garlic.

Cook until the onion is tender and translucent and you can smell the garlic coming from the pan.


Now add the basil and Italian seasoning.
I also added a tsp of Kosher Salt here.


When the sausage is fully cooked you can add the chicken broth,  


Beans,


And diced tomatoes.

Give everything a stir together,


Cover and let come to a simmer for 10-15 minutes.


After 15 minutes you can add the elbow macaroni.


Cover and cook for another 8 minutes.


Once the macaroni is fully cooked you can add the spinach and


Grated parmesan cheese.


Give everything a stir together, allow the spinach to wilt, and you are ready to eat!


Now only is this Italian Sausage and White Bean Soup hearty and flavorful, but can we talk about how Christmassy and festive those colors are?!?  It's just perfect for this time of year!  No matter what time of year you make this one thing is for certain, you're gonna love it so get in the kitchen and give it a try TONIGHT!

And as always...

Happy Reading, Happy Eating, and Happy Christmas,
~The Kitchen Wife~

  6. I've made this a couple of times & my husband & I think it's really delicious. I entered a local soup cook-off in 2017 and 2018, winning 1st & 2nd places, respectively. I've decided to make this my 2019 soup entry. I just know it'll either take 1st or 2nd place. Thanks so much for the great recipe.

  13. I was looking to recreate a soup that we enjoy from a local restaurant. When I happened upon your recipe, I thought I'd give it a try. I have to say that this recipe is truly delicious and my husband even preferred it to the restaurant version. I followed the recipe exactly with no modifications. I will definitely be making this again many times this winter. Yum, yum, yum!!!

  15. Mmmm. I made this tonight, and followed the directions exactly (which is unusual for me). Delicious! Next time I’ll double it! Can’t think of anything to change, except maybe just a few red pepper flakes. Excellent flavor.

  16. Can you do this in a crockpot and just add the noodles to the bowl once the soup is ready so they don't over cook?

  19. This was outstanding, such great flavor. I cooked a bag of dry beans in the pressure cooker and used frozen chopped spinach, worked like a charm. Thank you for such an easy and wonderful soup. It should last me thru the rest of the winter��

  25. I veganized this with beyond meat sausage, vegetable broth, and used Parma - Better Than Bacon flakes instead of parmesan cheese. I doubled the noodle amount and used farfalle just because they are my favorite and I always feel like there are never enough noodles in soup.

    It would fool any non vegan, amazing recipes can usually be veganized and still be so delicious. Thanks for the amazing recipe!
