- Blend 1 1/2 cups of cannellini beans with about 1 cup of chicken broth. Set aside. (If you don't have a blender or food processor you can use a potato masher or fork to mash the beans and then stir in the broth).
- In a large pot heat olive oil over medium heat. Add diced onions and saute until softened, about 4-5 minutes.
- Add sausage to the pan and cook about 2-3 minutes, until the edges begin to brown. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute.
- Add the remaining ingredients, including the mashed beans, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a simmer and cook uncovered 15-20 minutes. Enjoy!
