How To Make string bean and linguica soup

  • Although I didn't have any tomato sauce called for, it was delicious!
    Saute onion and green pepper in butter until onions are tender. Place onion and pepper in pot with potatoes, linguica and beans. Add enough water to cover. Add allspice,salt and pepper. Stir in tomato sauce. Cover and simmer until beans are tender, about 1 hour.
