Winter Warmer - Tuscan Bean & Sausage Soup

Tuscan Bean and Sausage soup

2 tblsp of olive oil
2 red onions
2 garlic cloves
100g of pancetta chopped (you can buy it in packs prechopped)
1 carrot finely chopped
2 celery stalks chopped
1 can of cannelli beans
3 spicy italian sausages ( I sometimes use 4)
1 litre of chicken stock
1 bay leaf
a bunch of flat leaf parsley
Sea salf and freshly ground black pepper

Put the oil in the saucepan (i use a big deep le Creuset casserole)
and heat well. Add the onion, garlic, pancretta, carrot and celery and cook over low heat for about 10 mins until softened but not browned. Add the sausages, beans, stock, bay leaf, salt and pepper. Bring to the boil, cover with a lid and simmer for 30 mins. Skim off any excess fat. Then remove the sausages with a large spoon or tongs. Slice them into chunky pieces and return to the soup. Add the parsley and Serve in large bowls.

Delicious served on its own or with garlic bread or Focaccia - Ciara
