It’s national soup month and I wanted to start this new year with this Tuscan Sausage and Bean Soup!! It’s a favorite here and it’s been too long since I last made it!!
Creamy broth paired with sausage and tender white beans boost your mood and keep you calm and warm during these Winter months.

- 1 1/2 cups milk

In a large pot, add the beans, onion, salt and pepper with the broth and cook on med heat, stirring often, for 2 hours. Keep an eye on your broth level and add more if needed.
In a skillet, cook the sausage and remove half the fat.
