This is a variation of the Portuguese Linguica and grean bean soup that my mother in law passed on to me. This was her mother's recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

  • 2cut linguica into 1/2 rounds{I remove skin from linguica 1st} Add to pan and stir, let cook for a few minutues to marry the flavors and soften a bit.Do not brown.

    Frozen greans beans work fine in this recipe, just add at the very end after the potatoes have cooked. Add a little water if needed. This is more of a stew consitency.
