Directions Step-By-Step

1
Wash and soak dried beans overnight or fast soak for an hour in boiling water. Rinse.
2
In a large pot, add beans, dried chicken stock, canned tomatoes, herbs, 2 tbs olive oil.
3
Add 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.
4
Place 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.
5
Last 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.
