White Bean and Sausage Soup
White Bean and Sausage Soup is all about flavor and ease, not a bad combination by any means.
This cannellini bean soup all starts by browning some sausage in a large soup pot or skillet.
Because it’s my favorite pan in the kitchen, I like to use my enamel coated skillet when making this sausage bean soup.
I like this skillet so much that I gave it a name, William.
For good or bad, that practice seemed to catch on in my kitchen.
And much to the chagrin of my boys and spouse, I now have quite a few named pots, pans and a sundry of baking dishes in my kitchen cupboards
It’s not all bad; giving my pots and pans each a name is just one more reason for my family to make fun of me.
Besides feeding them, I take pride in entertaining them on occasion.
After the sausage is browned, some diced onions and fennel are added to the pan and sauteed.
Next, some dry white wine is added to the pan to deglaze.
Before you can say “Soup’s On!“, you’ve got a big pot that looks something like this, front and center on your kitchen stove.
