Or you can deglaze with white wine, as the recipe suggests.
The recipe calls for “new potatoes,” I used baby Yukon golds, which I love!
I stirred in scallions and spinach at the very end. The recipe suggests adding them in at the time you mix in the potatoes, but I think the spinach and scallions would become too mushy for my taste, so I waited until the end.
Cannellini, White Northern, etc., will work. Any kind of bean you like, drained and rinsed. I had White Northern on hand.
How cute are these dishes!? They were a Christmas present from a fave.
This soup was delicious! This is the first time I’ve tried hot Italian turkey sausage! I was a bit nervous as the sausage was browning, as it had a smell I wasn’t sure I would like, but it tasted wonderfully spicy and hot in the soup.
