Have a Soup-er day.

The weather lately has been really cold.  It was especially windy and rainy today.  Soup to the rescue!  I threw together this easy soup that tastes pretty fantastic.

6oz Fully-cooked Chicken Sausage Meat.  Italian-y flavors would probably be best. Find them at Trader Joe's
1 large carrot, chopped
1 stalk of celery, chopped
1 small yellow onion, chopped
1 small tomato, chopped
4 cups of broth (chicken or vegetable)
1 can cannellini beans
cooked orecchiette or similar pasta.  About 1 cup, cooked.
2 tbsp butter
olive oil
dried thyme, basil, rosemary, oregano
salt and pepper

Melt the butter and add the Chopped Chicken meat.  Brown about 2 minutes, then add the carrot, celery and yellow onion.  Cook until the onion is transparent.  Add the broth, tomato, beans and olive oil, herbs and salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer.  Let it go about 20 minutes.  Add the pasta when you're ready to eat.  This soup tastes great reheated.

I got rave reviews from Zach.  Make it!  Enjoy!
