what you need
  • 2-3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1 pound low-fat mild turkey Italian sausages, casings removed
  • 2 large cans (1 lb. 12 oz) diced Italian tomatoes with olive oil, oregano and garlic
  • 1 carton chicken broth
  • 1 cup red or white wine (optional)
  • Basil
  • Thyme
  • Oregano
  • 1 can cannelloni beans, drain and rinsed
  • 1 box ditalini pasta
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese (about)
  • Pepper
make it
Sauté diced garlic in extra virgin olive oil until golden. Add sausage, break meat into chunks with spoon and cook about 5 minutes.

Add the tomatoes with liquid, broth and wine; simmer for 30-45 minutes. Add spices (basil, and thyme, oregano) to taste. If the consistency becomes too thick, add more broth or water as desired. After it has simmered 30 to 45 minutes, add the beans and 3/4 box of the pasta (less if you want more of a soup consistency).

Cover and remove from heat. Soup will thicken from the starch in the beans and macaroni. Stir a few times and keep covered until the pasta is cooked. Serve with lots of grated cheese on top.

Rated  by a cook on 9/29/2009 This was very good. I substituted Mild Italian sausage for the Turkey, and only added 1 1/2 cups of the ditalini. Also, white kidney beans are the same as cannelloni beans. I have added this to my list of soups to make for my family.
