Reviews for Sausage Bean Soup
"I always make recipes "as is" when trying for the first time. We actually found this to be a bit bland in its original version. I jazzed it up the second time by using Italian-diced tomatoes, as well as more basil and then added some Italian spice. This helped a lot."
"I used the butter beans and kidney beans also the smoked turkey kielbasa, it was awesome! Don't forget the basil, makes the dish! Thanks TOH!"
"Super easy and it goes together real fast. I did simmer mine covered for longer than 10 minutes. Removed the lid and simmered for 10 minutes. I also added a little bit of water to it the next day as it really thickened up overnight.Hubby said its The Best *Janie"

"I glancing through an old copy of Taste of Home from the '90's and came across this wonderful, fast easy recipie. I substituted a can of tomato soup for the canned diced tomatoes and added my own swiss chard for a little color and nutrition boost. The Italian Grilled Cheese that goes with it tastes like pizza. We might start having this once a week it's so good and easy."

"I've been making this soup for several years and we love it. But the flavor really depends on getting good Italian sausage. I also double the beef broth, since there did not seem to be much broth with just one can."
