White Bean Soup

My sister has been begging me to try this recipe for a long time. She has been eating it all year long. Soup in summer just don’t mesh well for me so I put off making it until I could justify eating soup. With the cooler weather we have had recently, I decided to finally give it a go.

This soup is wonderful! The flavor is fantastic and it is perfect for warming you up on a chilly day! It will definitely be a cold weather dinner recipe that is a regular in our rotation!

White Bean Soup... this is the PERECT soup for a chilly day! The flavor is amazing!

    Oh my goodness ! I made this soup last night. It was one of the best soups I have ever tried. I did not use jack cheese I used Asiago cheese instead. It even added more flavor. I also used Sam's Club Chicken Asiago sausage instead of chicken only because that is what I had on hand. My entire family loved it ! I can't wait to make your other soup recipes. We bought soft pretzels from Sam's Club to dip in the soup it was so yummy. This one is a keeper !
