  • Prep time:30 Minutes
  • Cost Per Serving:$2.34

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 pound Italian sausage, cut into 1-inch slices
  • 1 large onion, cut in half and thinly sliced
  • 2 ribs celery, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Pinch of crushed red pepper
  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes with juice
  • 2 15-oz. cans cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 small bunch Swiss chard, stems removed, leaves chopped (about 3 cups)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • Grated Parmesan, optional

Preparation

1. Warm oil in a pot over medium heat and cook sausage until browned, about 10 minutes; transfer to a plate. Add onion and celery to pot and sauté until beginning to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Add garlic and red pepper; sauté for 1 minute.

2. Pour in broth, raise heat to high and bring just to a boil, scraping up brown bits from pot. Return sausage to pot; stir in tomatoes and beans. Bring back to a boil, reduce heat to low; simmer for 15 minutes.

3. Season soup with salt and pepper. Stir in chard; cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Stir in parsley and top with Parmesan, if desired.

Note:
