Country Sausage Soup

Savory pork sausage, two kinds of beans and diced tomatoes make this soup one I prepare time and again. It's a hearty fix for when I don't know what to prepare for supper.—Grace Meyer, Galva, Kansas

    Good “Base Soup”. First time, made as written. Not bad. Omitted the Rosemary ‘cuz I didn’t have it. Second time, We used 80/20 burger meat ‘cuz it’s the meat on hand. Both versions were mighty tasty.

    A soup with wonderful flavor! I cut the thyme in half just because I'm not a real fan of thyme. I do think it needs to be there just not as much!

    I can't believe how good this soup is with so few ingredients! I did add some frozen spinach and canned fire roasted tomatoes with seasonings but kept everything else the same. I will definitely be making this again. Serve with some crusty bread for a delicious meal!

    I have been making this soup since I first saw it in your magazine in 2011. It is so easy and so good.

    This is an amazingly easy, flavorful soup. I sometimes leave out the rosemary cuz my family isn't crazy for it. You won't even miss it.

    This is one of the best soups I have ever tasted! I get requests every week for it and if I don't eat quick there is none left. I usually serve it with french bread.
