    Heat 5-quart Dutch oven over medium-high heat; add sausage. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring to break up pieces, until no longer pink. Drain, and reserve.
  • 2
    Add oil to Dutch oven; heat over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and green beans. Cook 4 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are just crisp-tender. Stir in zucchini, garlic and thyme; cook about 1 minute or until garlic is fragrant. Stir in tomatoes, stock, cannellini beans and sausage; heat to simmering. Cover; reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer 18 to 20 minutes or until vegetables are tender but not soft. Stir in basil; serve with Parmesan cheese.

Expert Tips

  • Your crowd not interested in spicy soup? Regular Italian sausage can be substituted for the spicy sausage in this recipe.
  • This soup can be frozen for up to 6 months. If you plan to freeze, omit the basil. Completely thaw in refrigerator; reheat to a full simmer, and add fresh basil after reheating.
