EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

It's easy to make this soup meatless. Simply substitute an additional can of great northern beans or your favorite canned beans for the sausage and use vegetable broth instead of beef broth.

Top each serving with a little chopped fresh basil or a fresh basil sprig for an extra burst of color and flavor.
