I just love this bean soup recipe , my mom taught me how to make this years ago but I have changed it a bit to fit my tastes. You can make this soup with different types of beans if you prefer too. This soup can be made on the stove top too if you don't have a crock-pot.
Crock Pot Zuppa Toscana (Copycat Olive Garden) 1 lb. sausage 2 large russet baking potatoes , sliced in half, and then in 1/4 inch slices 1 large onion , chopped 1/4 c. bacon bits (optional) 2 garlic cloves , minced 2 c. kale or swiss chard , chopped 16 oz. can chicken broth 1 quart water 1 c. heavy whipping cream
weight watchers corn, bacon, and potato chowder. This is an amazingly rich soup, and although it is weight watchers, it is not short on flavor. This is also a FAST soup to prepare and serve - within 30 to 45 minutes.
For cold winter nights....Cheese, Potato, Smoked Sausage Casserole (Made 10/2012 huge huge huge hit!! but next time were going to leave out the salt since the sausage and cheese have salt, i also cheated and used frozen cubed taters!!!)
