Tuscan Soup

We love hot and spicy soups on cold nights.  So, yesterday evening, as the snow was falling outside, we were all sitting around the dining table enjoying a wonderful, Tuscan soup with spicy pork sausage, cannellini and garbanzo beans, potatoes, spinach, garlic..... it was all just so very good.

Here's the recipe:

6 c. chicken broth
1 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
3 links spicy Italian sausage
3 large potatoes, cubed
1 can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
1 can garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained
1 bunch fresh spinach, rough chopped
1/4 c. evaporated milk
salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
Parmesan cheese, shredded

1.  Remove skin from sausage and crumble into large pot. 
Add chopped onion, and cook over medium heat. 
Add garlic when meat is almost done.

2.  Add broth, potatoes.  Boil until potato is cooked.  Stir in beans.

3.  Add spinach. Continue boiling until spinach is lightly wilted.

4.  Remove soup from heat, stir in evaporated milk, and season to taste. 

5.  Top with Parmesan cheese and serve immediately. 
 Served with baguette slices and Italian Garlic Butter.
