Tuscan Bean and Italian Sausage Soup

If you read my blog fairly frequently you might think I just posted this; I even questioned it myself but they are different soups with similar ingredients. This one I adapted from a recipe I found in allrecipes.com that was submitted by domesticgoddess. It comes together quickly and has fabulous flavor and fits the bill around here. We got over a foot of snow here yesterday yeah March snow. It was starting to feel like Spring but I guess not.

So if you want a nice warming soup you should check this one out. I think the only thing I had to go out to get was the summer squash and I ended up buying a small box of wine since I don’t really drink red wine so I wasn’t going to do my “norm” and finish the bottle, you know so I doesn’t go bad.
