“Hearty, delicious and quick. Yes, this does use several canned products and also gets a head start with prepared soup. But there are times, at least in my home, when speed and convenience must take precedence. This recipe originated from Honeysuckle White so, of course, it calls for Italian turkey sausage. I have made it with turkey sausage and with regular Italian sausage--it is good either way. Also, feel free to substitute beans according to preference or what is on hand. I often use cannellini beans rather than red kidney beans.”
