Ingredients

  • 2 c. onion, chopped
  • 1 c. fennel bulb, chopped
  • 1/2 t. crushed red pepper
  • 10 oz. hot Italian sausage
  • 8 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 c. fresh sage, chopped
  • 1 T. tomato paste
  • 1 c. dry white wine
  • 6 c. unsalted chicken stock
  • 2 c. plum tomato, chopped
  • 4 (14.5 oz.) cans no-salt-added cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/4 c. fresh parsley, chopped

Directions

  1. Heat a large, heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Coat pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add onion, fennel, red pepper, sausage and garlic. Cook until sausage is browned, stirring to crumble sausage. Drain off excess fat from sausage.
  2. Add sage and tomato paste; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add wine; cook until liquid is reduced by half.
  3. Add the stock; bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for a few minutes. Add tomato and beans, and cook until beans are heated through. Serve hot sprinkled with parsley, or freeze for up to 2 months.
  4. To Freeze: Cool soup to room temperature; place in a large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Lay flat in freezer–be careful not to put anything on top of the bag until it’s fully frozen.
  5. To Reheat: Place soup into a large, heavy-bottomed pot and heat on medium, stirring frequently, until hot.
