Chicken Sausage & White Bean Soup
3 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 C water
4 oz. acini de pepe pasta
3 garlic & artichoke chicken sausage (Aidells brand)
2 handfuls of spinach/kale
1-15 oz. can low-sodium white beans
1 TBSP. garlic, minced
1 tsp. olive oil
Liquid aminos, to taste
Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.
In a large saucepan, sauté garlic and chicken sausage with olive oil for 3-5 minutes or until the sausage turns a golden brown color.
Add 1/4 of chicken broth and stir in spinach/kale until it becomes wilted. Add in remaining chicken broth, water, pasta and white beans. Cover and simmer on low for 5-7 minutes. Stir in liquid aminos until you reach desired taste. *I would start with small amounts, try adding 1 TBSP at a time
Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator in an air tight container
