Tuscan Sausage and Bean Soup

Ruth Ann Ryan

This is great served with crusty bread and salad.
To help get an early start, I use the canned beans, combine all the ingredients except spinach the night before in a large microwave safe bowl and refrigerate. The next morning, give the bowl a quick heat in the microwave to take the chill off then transfer to the crock pot and proceed. Drop the spinach in a colander in the sink to thaw and drain while the soup cooks.
This is an old recipe, don't know where it comes from, it's very filling.
in 1993 WNEPTV16 Scranton PA compiled a recipe book. I submitted this and it was printed on pg 14
