Diane's StoryA healthy soup full of fiber and protein. I created this using low fat Kielbasa sausage. Meatless version is just as good.
bag dried 17 bean soup beans
low fat turkey kielbasa sausage thinly sliced
1 or 2 large
1 1/2 c
wheat pasta macaroni noodles
petite diced tomatoes
no sodium/no fat dried chicken stock
water to cover
1Wash and soak dried beans overnight or fast soak for an hour in boiling water. Rinse.
2In a large pot, add beans, dried chicken stock, canned tomatoes, herbs, 2 tbs olive oil.
3Add 2 tbs olive oil to bottom of a second pan. Add all sliced veges. Cook over medium heat, stirring often until veges begin to soften. Add to soup bean mixture and cover with water.
4Place thinly sliced Kielbasa sausage in pan and lightly brown to remove excess fat. Add to soup mixture. Cook on medium approximately 2 hours, until dried beans are soft.
5Last step is to add dried noodles to soup. Cook until noodles are softened. Add salt and pepper to taste.

I made this the other day and it was really good. Very hearty and sticks to your ribs. I just have a couple of suggestions. There are a lot of novice cooks out there so the ingredients and cooking methods need to be pretty specific. It may sound silly but seasoned cooks know to chop veggies etc--but your recipe says 2 stalks of celery 2 carrots and 1 to 2 large onions. If I didn't know how to cook I mught just throw them in the pot. I would hope that people aren't that dense-but you never know!! LOL. You did not mention the size of the can of tomatoes or the size of the bag of beans, though--so that could make a difference.

The recipe also says 1 Tb. Italian Bread. I assume you mean Italian Bread Crumbs. Please edit & correct anything that isn't plain to readers. Thank you. The recipe sounds really good. Hubby & I really enjoy soup in the fall & winter! Thanks for sharing; pinched!
