pasta, beans and chicken sausage soup

Submitted by: DEBBS29

Introduction

This is comfort food at it's best.
This makes 6 huge servings and is one of my families favorites. I'm often told that it taste like soup that you would get from an Italian restaurant.

I serve this with crusty Italian bread and top with a little parmigiano reggiano, for additional calories of course :)
