Italian bean soup *THM E*

One of my favorite soups is Italian bean soup.  I had heard about it as a kid and made up a recipe after trying it at a restaurant and loving it! Well I haven't had it in forever cause I started trim healthy mama and honestly hadn't thought about it as an option! But after 10 months on plan it finally hit me it would be so easy to tweak for a THM E (energizing) meal! So I did it and as hubby loves it I decided it was definitely share worthy!

Italian bean soup

Low fat Italian sausage (i used 4 links that were 3.5g fat per serving and the recipe makes 6 servings so well in  E numbers)
4, 15oz cans of great northern beans (or you can sub cooked dry)
28 oz crushed tomatoes
2 cups of low fat broth of choice
2 rounded tsp basil
2 rounded tsp oregano
2 rounded tsp parsley
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp thyme
2 tsp red pepper flakes
Dash of cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tsp Garlic powder
Salt to taste
Low fat skim mozzarella to top

Take the sausage out of its casing and sautee it till done. Add spices and cook a minute longer then add the broth, crushed tomatoes and beans (rinsed) and stir. Cover and let simmer over medium low heat for a while or you can add ingredients in a crock pot and leave on low for the day! Serve with a sprinkle of the mozzarella!

Enjoy! ♡
