I usually make double batch of this meaty vegetable soup and freeze some in serving-size containers. It makes a nice meal for busy days or unexpected guests. —Emily Chaney, Penobscot, Maine

"This was a thick, yummy soup! I had a red and orange pepper so I used those. Also had beef boullion and used the whole pound of sausage. When I make it again, I might add a little more water and seasoning to accommodate an extra can of beans. Very easy to make, too."
