Italian Peasant Soup Recipe
« on: March 12, 2013, 08:50:04 AM »
Here is the recipe I use:

Italian Peasant Soup

1 lb Italian sausage, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 medium onions, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb boneless chicken, cut into 1 inch pieces
2 (15 ounce) cans cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
2 (14 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
6 cups fresh spinach leaves, chopped
Fresh shredded parmesan cheese

Directions:

1.  In a large pot, cook sausage over medium heat until browned and no longer pink; drain.

2.  Add onions and garlic; saute until tender.

3.  Add chicken; saute and stir until no longer pink.

4.  Add in the beans, broth, tomatoes, basil, and oregano; stir to mix.

5.  Cook uncovered, for 10 minutes.

6.  Add the spinach and heat just until wilted.

7.  Serve with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.


I use boneless chicken breasts, 2 cans of tomatoes instead of 1 ( I like a lot of tomatoes), and red kidney beans instead of the cannellini beans. I also add the spinach along with the broth, tomatoes etc. and let it simmer on low for awhile so the flavors blend together. Finish it off with some crusty bread and lots of Parmesan cheese and you got yourself one great meal. Enjoy!

There is nothing wrong with you. Not one single thing. Any fault lies with the fashion/cosmetic/marketing industry that has trained you with false proof to believe that you’re not perfect.
