Jennifer's "I Want Seconds!" Italian Sausage Soup, Green Salad

This Italian sausage soup recipe comes from Let Me Plan Dinner reader Jennifer, who blogs at 3 Little Chicks. I'll be serving this soup with a green salad and maybe some kind of bread.

Here is Jennifer's recipe as she wrote it. Thanks for sharing!

1 pound ground Bulk sweet Italian sausage
1 yellow onion, chopped
10 oz. bag of shredded carrot
3 (14oz) cans of beef or chicken broth. (I used the lower sodium kind)
2 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes with basil, oregano, and garlic. (I used the no salt added kind)
1 (16oz) can red kidney beans-drained
1 (16oz) can of great northern beans- drained
6 oz (1/2 a box) Bowtie pasta

In a large pot, cook the sausage, onion and carrots together until sausage is browned and crumbles. Stir in the broth, tomatoes and beans. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to med/low and simmer for 20 min. Add the pasta: simmer for 8-10 minutes, or until pasta is tender. Stir and serve immediately.

*Mmm! Thanks, Jennifer. I really did want seconds! This recipe was a delicious and easy soup. I will probably use half the sausage next time just to save on money and calories. This was a hit at our house.
