  • Summary

    When you don’t know what’s for dinner but it needs to be comforting, we suggest this soup. It has a brothy tomato base that’s loaded with rich Italian sausage, sweet carrots, caramely onions, tender cannellini beans, silky spinach and just the right amount of pasta. Top it off with a handful of garlicky butter-toasted Progresso™ bread crumbs and a handful of Parmesan, and you’ve got dinner. Extra credit if you serve it alongside a green salad and loaf of crusty bread.
