This soup is so yummy...


Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you. You probably have most of these things already in your kitchen. You can use whatever kind of bean that you have, and pasta as well. You can use just sausage or just ground beef as well. Use what you have. I have also added at times some cooked greens (spinach or collard) about a 1/2 cup to this soup (clened out the fridge:) LOL and it was delicious.
