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
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!
