One of our go-to winter soups is this one from Taste of Home. This hearty Sausage Bean Soup is packed with flavor and oh-so-simple. Whip this up in a pinch, or let it simmer away on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
In a small saucepan or stock pot, add onion, garlic, and sausage. Cook on medium to medium high for 5 minutes, or until sausage is browned.
Add tomatoes, broth, drained and rinsed beans, and basil. Bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes or more.
Serve, garnished with cheese with some of our homemade no knead bread on the side.
