Tuscany Soup

My mom gave me this is a recipe ago. I used to make it all the time, then I got tired of it. Over Christmas, Jeffrey's aunt Carol told me she makes it all the time, so I was reminded to make it! I forgot how great it is. Once you make it you will say, "why was she holding this recipe back from us for so long!" Emily and I made dinner for Meg and Will last night. Will said it was one of his favorites that I have made for him and I only make my best food for the 3Bs!

I tried to cut this soup recipe in half (when making it for Jeffrey and I), and was sad when there wasn't any leftovers. Here is the full recipe so you can have leftovers!

Tuscany Soup

1 Package Italian Turkey Sausage or Italian Chicken
1/2 cup Red Wine
1 jar Arrabiata Sauce
1 cup chicken broth
1 cup cream
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 can great northern beans (sometimes called white beans)
1 bunch Kale
1/4 cup fresh basil

Cook sausage in a stock pot.
Pour wine into pan and add arrabiata sauce. Allow to simmer for a few minutes.

Rinse and drain beans. Add beans, broth and cream to pot.

Chop Kale into bite sized pieces and add to pot.
Chop basil. (These are my new kitchen shears, they have 2 blades!)
Add basil to pot. Stir and turn off heat.

Serve with crusty bread!
