Italian Sausage, White Bean, and Spinach Soup

If I had to declare my favorite thing to cook, it would undoubtedly be soup. Soups of all kinds. From thin, watery broths to rich, thick almost-stews. I like them all. They can cool you down in summer or warm you in winter. They make you feel better when you’re under the weather and can satisfy a rumbly tummy when nothing else will.

I spend much of my time in the kitchen making soups of one kind or another. Long, slow simmering soups like the classic French onion and quick no-cook soups like gazpacho. I really enjoy playing around with ingredients for soup and coming up with combinations that work well. Like this Italian Sausage, White Bean, and Spinach Soup.

This delightful soup is just perfect for the Fall season. Its Italian flavors are quite nicely satisfying and all it really needs to make it complete is a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese and some crusty bread on the side. I topped our toasted baguette slices with roasted tomatoes and I’d encourage you to try those if you have the time.

Even though summer may be starting to wind down a bit, there’s still loads of lovely produce available. One of my summer favorites is gorgeous yellow squash. I like it every way you can think of. Sauteed, fried, steamed with onions. BeeBop on the other hand, is not a fan. I’ve never understood that since […]
