I call this Can-Can soup because I can easily create it from things I always have in my pantry. I change it by using different combos of beans and tomatoes and adding different sausages. I can add veggies by what needs to be used up or what is on my shelves or in the freezer. We eat low sodium so I put no added salt items into my pot. I also do a quick cook on my sausage and rinse it under hot water to get a bit more salt off the sausage. This is a great basic recipe that is almost always ready! I hope I have given you enough options that you can create your own family favorite.
