Italian Sausage and Bean Soup

Soup is something that everyone in my family loves. I have a tendency to stick to vegetable or potato soups but I’ve been trying to branch out and make other kinds.

This recipe for Italian Sausage and Bean Soup is a new favorite. It takes just a few simple ingredients that I can actually get at my local Aldi making it super frugal. Even if you don’t have an Aldi it’s still pretty cheap. Just as a note this is not a sponsored post. One of my standards for a really budget friendly recipe is if I can get all the ingredients at Aldi.

I’ve made this soup with both Great Nothern and Cannellini beans and we liked the Great Northern beans better in the recipe so use your favorite.

I like to serve this soup with Restaurant Style Breadsticks and salad
