I would certainly drain all the tinned beans before using them and add add some reduced-salt stock, or even better homemade stock which if you've got a bit of different veg in the bottom of the fridge only takes 20 mins to make. I'm currently making a sausage and lentil casserole which is heavenly.-28 Feb 2014

tbh I cooked it and found it very bland and could only taste the Kidney bean juice :/-30 Apr 2013


Very hearty! Very tasty! Made it for a potluck and received rave reviews. The description indicates that it is even better the next day. It is delicious the next day BUT the noodles no longer have their texture, which is disappointing. Overall, we loved it!-12 May 2000

White Bean and Sausage Soup with Pasta

Is there anything more comforting than ladling up a pot of bubbly, savory soup? We don&rsquot think so. As the temps get cooler and the days get longer, the family gathers in the kitchen a little bit more often, craving something warm, aromatic, and satisfying for a hot lunch or supper. While many soups and stews may require a few hours to simmer on the stovetop, this easy white bean soup comes together in just 40 minutes. To make the soup even heartier, we have added pasta and turkey sausage. Use your favorite smoked sausage if you wish, but you may have a bit more grease in the pan than if you used turkey. Brown the sausage and onions, then add garlic, rosemary, seasonings, beans and chicken stock. Add uncooked pasta and let it them get tender, then stir in swiss chard. Chard is a nutritious, green leafy vegetable with a taste that is a bit milder than spinach. Use raw chard in green salads, sauté it with garlic and olive oil, or bake it into a frittata. Serve a basket of warm, homemade bread with this while bean and pasta soup for a complete quick and easy weeknight supper. To keep the sodium count on this bean and sausage soup low, purchase low-sodium cannellini beans and low-sodium chicken stock.

About This Sausage Bean Soup with Pasta

There are two things that I absolutely love in a Fall soup recipe- when it&rsquos super easy to make, and it&rsquos budget-friendly. Because let&rsquos face it- fall is a precursor to winter and that means holiday spending.

So I&rsquom super excited to bring you this easy, delicious, and money-saving soup recipe, and show you how I make a double batch and freeze half. I think you will love this soup.

How to store leftovers

Because of the pasta this soup is at it's best when served immediately. Leftovers are still great but the pasta does become very soft once it's been reheated again.

Store leftovers in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 4 days and warm only as much as is needed in a pan on the stove top or in a microwave. Be sure to heat until piping hot, but not for any longer to avoid cooking the pasta more than is necessary.

I haven't yet tried freezing this soup yet. if you do let me know how it goes in the comments section.

And so to recap. This Vegan Italian Sausage Pasta Soup is:

  • Rustic and hearty
  • Filling
  • Easy to make
  • Full of tomatoe-y, herby, sausage-y flavour
  • Creamy and velvety
  • Ultra-cozy
  • Very family friendly (don't all kids and big kids like tomato soup and pasta and sausages?)

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large celery stalk, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cups fat-free, low-sodium or regular chicken broth, divided
  • 1 (15oz) can cannellini beans, rinsed and well drained
  • 1 (8oz) can low-sodium or regular tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 2 to 3 drops hot pepper sauce (optional)
  • 3 oz reduced-fat beefsausage
  • 1 oz angel hair pasta broken into 2-inch pieces (about ½ cup) to taste (optional)
  1. In a small Dutch oven or similar pot, combine the onion, celery, garlic, oil, and ¼ cup broth. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 6 to 7 minutes or until the onion is tender.
  2. Add the remaining broth, cannellini beans, tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, and hot pepper sauce, if using. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.
  3. Bring the soup to a boil. Stir in sausage and pasta.
  4. Reduce the heat and cook at a low boil 4 or 5 minutes, until the pasta is tender. Add salt to taste, if desired

Pasta Soup tips

  1. U se a hot cast iron skillet and don’t over-stir or over crumble the meat — you want it to get browned to develop layers of flavor. Transfer sausage to a paper towel-lined plate to drain off the grease.
  2. Dice all three veggies into small and even sizes so they’ll cook quickly and integrate into the soup nicely.
  3. I recommend getting a good brand of broth/stock and fire roasted tomatoes as these ingredients are contributing the main flavor. I typically use Swanson® broth/stock and Muir Glen® or San Marzano® fire-roasted tomatoes (not sponsored)
  4. Grab a low sodium or no salt added broth/stock so you can control the amount of salt in the soup.
  5. These photos show regular-sized farfalle pasta, but I also tested it with miniature farfallepasta, and it was even better! Either pasta works, but the mini farfalle is easier to eat. Plus, you get more pasta per bite!


What’s in a name? Americans often call farfalle bow tie pasta. The name farfalle actually comes from farfalla, which is Italian for butterfly…and you know what? That name makes perfect sense now!


  • 1 pound mild Italian sausage, casings removed
  • 2 cups thinly sliced yellow onion (from 1 medium)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery (from about 3 stalks)
  • 1 cup thinly sliced fennel (from 1 small fennel bulb)
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped (about 1 Tbsp.)
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 2 (15-oz.) cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 (15-oz.) can fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 16 (1⁄4-inch)s French baguette slices (from 1 large baguette)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ounce Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, grated (about 1/4 cup)
  • Chopped fresh rosemary

Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high. Add sausage, and cook, stirring to crumble, until no longer pink, 6 to 8 minutes. Drain, leaving 1 tablespoon of drippings with sausage in Dutch oven. Add onion, celery, fennel, garlic, salt, red pepper, and 1/2 teaspoon of the black pepper. Cook, stirring often, until vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Add white wine, and scrape any browned bits from the bottom of the Dutch oven. Stir in chicken stock, beans, and tomatoes bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 10 minutes.

Preheat broiler with oven rack 6 inches from heat. Place baguette slices on a rimmed baking sheet, and brush 1 side of each piece with olive oil. Sprinkle evenly with cheese and remaining 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Broil until cheese is melted and beginning to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from oven.

Ladle 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 8 bowls sprinkle with chopped rosemary, and serve with toasts.
