Even though I live in SO Florida, where the winters are mild. A hearty bowl of bean soup always remind me of living up north on a fall day when you want something to warm the soul. This is a quick and easy no fuss soup rich in flavor.
1In a large sauce pan (about 4 - 5 quart) add olive oil, onions,garlic and saute until tender. Then add chicken broth and dice tomatoes. Bring to boil, then reduce to medium heat.
2Make mini sausage meat balls - squeezed sausage meat out of each link casing and make mini meat balls and drop into soup mixture. Cook for about 5 - 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until sausage is tender.
3Season with MRS Dash Herb & Garlic seasoning to taste.
Add drained beans and stir gently, let simmer for about 10 minutes. Serve in medium size bowls and garnish with fresh parsley. I like to put a little Goat cheese crumble or Parmesan cheese on top. This is also great with your favorite French bread. Enjoy
