    1 tsp. minced garlic
    1/2 tsp. extra light virgin olive oil
    4 cups low sodium chicken broth
    3 cups cooked white beans - or one 15 oz. can Great Northern or Cannellini beans, rinsed
    1 lb. Italian sausage, cooked and rinsed
    1 tsp. dried basil or 4 minced leaves fresh basil
    2 cups diced tomatoes
    1 10 oz. pkg. frozen spinach
    1 tsp. Parmesan cheese


1. Sautee garlic in olive oil.

2. Add sauteed garlic to 4 cups of chicken broth.

3. Add white beans to chicken broth and bring to boil for 5 minutes. Option: for creamy soup use hand blender and puree beans into broth.

    It would be nice if with each recipe instead of 8 servicing, how about the size of serving.

    I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! I used an Italian sausage from HEB (made from ground chicken with spinach, feta) and 5 cloves of garlic minced. It's in my recipe book as a keeper! - 2/25/11
